Doha Pact - another push to be done

Since the so-called Doha trade round was started in 2001, talks have repeatedly become deadlocked because of disagreements between trading powers like Brazil, the European Union, India and the United States.

The meeting is scheduled to be held over five days at the W.T.O. headquarters in Geneva starting July 21, with the goal of agreeing to specific tariff and subsidy cuts. Up to 40 countries are expected to attend.
