Washington, DC – National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) Vice President of Trade and Export Finance Mary Irace today delivered remarks during a panel discussion at the WTO Public Forum 2006 in Geneva. Irace discussed what the WTO will need to deliver in order to remain relevant and viable in the XXIst Century, with the recent suspension of the Doha Round negotiations adding significance to the question. Globalization and the trend to regional and bilateral free trade agreements formed part of the backdrop, but the focus of Irace’s remarks were on the WTO and how a revived Doha Development Agenda could contribute to the WTO.
