The article reports on the claim of World Trade Organization director-general Pascal Lamy that the Doha round of trade talks are at crisis point. According to Lamy, necessary agreements to establish modalities in agriculture and non-agricultural marker access are becoming unsubstantial. Chemical companies want to see tariffs reduced anti trade liberalised further.
