The article focuses on issues related to the December 2005 round of World Trade Organization (WTO) talks in Hong Kong, China. If a panel discussion at the annual conference of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers is any indicator, the Hong Kong discussions won't exactly be a cakewalk. All the easy stuff is done, all the tough stuff remains, said Bill Bryant, chairman of Bryant Christie Inc. U.S. business and agriculture should support the WTO, because it is the only game in town, said Timothy Punke, partner in Preston Gates Ellis.
