Invitation to a roundtable: The Doha Round: Improving the Chances for a Successful Conclusion

February 24 2011
Venue: Nordrhein-Westfalen, 47 Rue Montoyer, Brussels
Speakers: Stuart HarbinsonnHugo PaemennRoderick Abbott
Time: 12:00

New initiatives have now been taken to advance the Doha Round negotiations to a successful end. After years of stalemate, there is increasing optimism in the Doha talks and trade ministers decided during the Davos meeting in January that serious efforts should be made to conclude the Round before the end of this year. What are the chances for new efforts to bear fruit – and how do the negotiation dynamics need to change for deals to be struck? If past approaches by governments remain intact, the result will be the same as in the past. So: what needs to change?

You are cordially invited to an expert roundtable on the Doha Round. Stuart Harbinson, a non-residential Senior Fellow at ECIPE and a former Chairman of the WTO General Council, will kick off the discussion. Hugo Paemen, a Senior Adviser at Hogan Lovells and former lead negotiator for the EU in the Uruguay Round, and Roderick Abbott, Senior Adviser at ECIPE and former Deputy Director General at the WTO, will follow with comments and observations.

Lunch and refreshments will be served.

RSVP by February 23 to info@ecipe.org
