HONG KONG — The Doha trade talks aren't dead yet, World Trade Organization deputy director-general Rufus Yerxa told a gathering here of some of the top decision-makers in global manufacturing.
"It's a daunting exercise to get a format for tariff reduction among 150 countries," said Yerxa, speaking to the Prime Source Forum through a video link from Geneva. "It's not easy to find a way to navigate, but we have made significant progress. It's a complicated negotiating schedule that has so far prevented us from making a breakthrough. We have had so many false dawns."
