  • [01] EU seeks consensus on WTO agenda at first regional seminar on new issues in Chile

    The EU has launched a new initiative to help find consensus on an agenda for World Trade Organisation negotiations. Starting in Santiago, Chile this week (29 November-1 December), the EU is holding a series of regional seminars on the so-called new issues for a trade round : investment, competition, the environment and trade facilitation. The EU has launched this initiative to enable more discussion and analysis of the potential scope and implications of WTO rules in new areas. Commenting on the initiative, European Trade Commissioner Pascal Lamy said : "Our goal is to secure better understanding and of course support for our aims in different areas of the potential new Round. We are looking for the right level of ambition and a negotiating approach which will be acceptable to all, particularly developing countries with limited resources". This first meeting, hosted by the Government of Chile, will enable participants from WTO member countries in Latin America to explore these issues. Further seminars on the same lines will take place in South Africa and possibly Asia next year. Participants are expected to include trade negotiators, government officials, representatives from international organisations, representatives of the business community and, in the interests of gathering as wide an audience as possible, officials from investment boards, competition authorities and environment ministries.

    [02] EU real agricultural producer prices stable in 2000

Increases are expected in the remainder countries, ranging from +1.5% in Greece to +7.1% in Denmark.
