ABSTRACT
The article reports on the opposition of the U.S. cotton program by Brazil. Brazilian trade officials are upping the ante on last year's World Trade Organization decision that mostly favored that government's complaint against the U.S. cotton program. Pedro de Camargo, the former Brazilian trade minister responsible for launching the challenges to the U.S. cotton program and the European Union's sugar regime, told members of the International Food & agricultural Trade Policy Council that Brazil will not bend from its insistence that both programs be changed.
