ABSTRACT
The article reports on the disappointment expressed by the chemical industry as the 2006 round of trade talks collapsed in Geneva, Switzerland. At the root of the breakdown lies the failure for the Group of Six countries being able to accept a lowering of tariffs on agricultural products. The failure of the negotiations deals a blow to chemical leaders' hopes of an elimination of chemical import duties by all World Trade Organization members that have a viable chemical industry.
