GENEVA — The resignation of European Union Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson on Friday to become Secretary of State for business, enterprise and regulatory reform in the British government is a major loss for salvaging the troubled global Doha talks, envoys said.
Catherine Ashton, an economist and leader of the House of Lords, was confirmed on Monday to replace Mandelson, after being nominated by José Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission, the executive arm of the 27-member EU, in consultation with U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
