Chair set to introduce revised agriculture negotiation text

The chair of the WTO’s agriculture negotiations, Ambassador Gloria Abraham Peralta, told heads of delegations at a meeting on 15 November that she plans to circulate a revised draft negotiation text as soon as possible. She will also present her report to the Trade Negotiations Committee on 19 November — just over a week ahead of the 12th Ministerial Conference (MC12). It will not be an easy task but she will try her utmost to balance different negotiation interests at this “critical time” and offer the “most realistic option for MC12”, she said
