The Bali Package featured agreement on four overarching areas: trade facilitation, agriculture, cotton and development. Without some sort of achievement in Bali, many argued the multilateral trade regime would become irrelevant. However, critics of the Bali Package, and the WTO negotiation process in general, are quick to note that the agreement papers over the tough issues, such as agricultural subsidies, making meaningful agreement on those issues in the future much more unlikely.

The Doha Development Round and Challenges to Multilateral Trade Negotiations
Home Issues 5. At the most recent World Trade Organisation WTO ministerial conference, in December , in Bali, Indonesia, ministers from countries concluded the first multilateral agreement ever negotiated under the auspices of the WTO. The centrepiece of the package is without doubt a new agreement on trade facilitation aimed at reducing red tape, and facilitating customs procedures in an effort to cut down the cost of doing business. Other — less far reaching — aspects of the deal focused on food security and a set of issues of particular interest to least developed countries including trade preferences or cotton subsidies. As the dust from the heated Bali negotiations settles, the main challenge for the WTO will now consist in building on this success to re-energise multilateral negotiations and ultimately close the Doha Round. It represents, however, the first truly multilateral agreement negotiated under the auspices of the year-old organisation, in what was seen by many as the last opportunity to save the Doha talks. This article provides an assessment of what was achieved in Bali from a development perspective.

This article focuses on the state of progress of negotiations at the World Trade Organization. Unfortunately, the post-Bali discussions were less positive since, although they produced interesting results in some areas, they did not produce satisfactory results on one of the most important multilateral trade issues, namely domestic support measures for agriculture. Even more problematically, the Nairobi ministerial noted a new difficulty, namely a lack of consensus on the very content of future negotiations.
The newly approved and recently implemented Trade Facilitation Agreement is the first international trade agreement of its kind. It will make it easier for all member nations of the World Trade Organization, but especially developing nations, to participate in and profit from international trade.
Сьюзан ответила ему теплой улыбкой. Ее всегда поражало, что даже в преддверии катастрофы Стратмор умел сохранять выдержку и спокойствие. Она была убеждена, что именно это качество определило всю его карьеру и вознесло на высшие этажи власти. Уже направляясь к двери, Сьюзан внимательно посмотрела на ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Она все еще не могла свыкнуться с мыслью о шифре, не поддающемся взлому. И взмолилась о том, чтобы они сумели вовремя найти Северную Дакоту. - Поторопись, - крикнул ей вдогонку Стратмор, - и ты еще успеешь к ночи попасть в Смоки-Маунтинс.
