What is the WTO’s Doha work program?

    This is a fairly complicated and detailed subject, but for the most part it appears to be a guideline of sorts for decision-making. “Doha” refers to Doha, Qatar, where the world’s trade ministers met under the auspices of the World Trade Organization in 2001 to negotiate on a number of subjects. The Doha Declaration mandates negotiations on over 20 different subjects, including agriculture, textiles and clothing, trade-related issues, etc. It arose in response to concerns expressed by developing countries. In Doha the ministers agreed to 50 different decisions that clarified the role and obligations of the developing nations in a number of issues. However, not all issues were settled, and in Doha the ministers agreed on a “work program” to deal with these unsettled matters. These issues are to be considered items of priority by future WTO councils and committees, with progress reports required. Hopefully this helps a bit…
