ABSTRACT
The article criticizes the failure of the Doha Round of trade negotiations to reach an agreement on most trade liberalization issues. It cites that developed countries would dismantle their agricultural protectionism to improve their basic infrastructure and develop their export capacity. He expects that the Doha Round would bring significant income gains for both developed and expanding countries. He stresses the lack of the leadership needed to move the round forward.
