GENEVA — Less than two months after ministers from key powers gave the go-ahead for the Doha global liberalization talks to again move into serious talks in search of a breakthrough, increased uncertainty is clouding the prospects that a successful deal can be clinched this year to lower market barriers, including for textiles and apparel.
U.S. Trade Representative Susan Schwab recently said there's still a "decent chance" of reaching a deal this year, but stipulated this would only be possible if major emerging economy nations such as India, Brazil and China were prepared to come forward with meaningful market-opening offers.
