  • [01] Sir Leon Brittan's statement on Maritime

    Under the terms of the Uruguay Round, negotiations to achieve a global deal on maritime services were due to be completed by the end of June 1996. Last Friday, these negotiations were suspended. They will be picked up again once comprehensive negotiations on services are resumed by the end of the century. Commenting on this outcome, Sir Leon Brittan, EU Commissioner for trade policy, said: "The outcome is a rescue operation rather than a step forward. We would have liked something more comprehensive and fought hard to achieve it. We are disappointed not to have achieved more, but even securing the outcome we adopted on friday was not easy, we do have a commitment to return to negotiations no later than 2000 and not, meanwhile, to take trade restrictive measures except in self-defence. This effective standstill should help all WTO members to preserve the status quo, in the interest of all our operators, in the years ahead".
