As negotiations continued at the WTO in Geneva, international agency Oxfam said that developing countries must not be blamed for delay or possible breakdown of the talks.
The deal emerging in WTO talks has some serious flaws and falls far short of the pro-development reform that was originally promised, said international agency Oxfam today.
A new US offer on farm subsidies at the WTO in Geneva does not go nearly far enough and will not deliver the promised benefits for developing countries.
Trade reform that puts poor countries first is desperately needed in the face of rising food and fuel prices and global economic insecurity. But current offers at the WTO would make the situation worse and undermine development.
