Stephen Castle, writing in Saturday’s New York Times, reported that, “Negotiators in Geneva are set to resume talks on world trade on Monday at the start of another crucial period for the stalled negotiations, which began in 2001 and have been on the verge of collapse for months.

“Discussions will focus on agriculture, one of the main obstacles to an accord, with negotiations on industrial issues and the trade of manufactured goods scheduled for the week after. The director general of the World Trade Organization, Pascal Lamy, will meet with trade ministers from the Asia and Pacific region in Sydney, Australia, from Wednesday through Friday.
