WTO agriculture negotiators chart path towards MC12
Monday, March 21, 2022
The chair of the agriculture negotiating group, Ambassador Gloria Abraham Peralta (Costa Rica), noted the impact of the conflict in Ukraine on global food markets and the agriculture negotiation environment. She asked members to prepare for intensive negotiations and use the remaining time wisely so as to achieve pragmatic, meaningful outcomes at MC12. Many members supported pursuing talks on the basis of the chair's draft negotiation text from November 2021 (TN/AG/50). In their view, this text is not perfect but offers a balanced and realistic starting point which reflects the efforts and hard work undertaken to date. Meanwhile, other members continued to ask the chair to revise the text to take on board the proposals from the G33 group of developing members and the African Group.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
