Abstract

The Doha Development Agenda is the first "round" of multilateral trade negotiations under the World Trade Organization and is also the first time that multilateral trade talks have explicitly sought to focus on the interests of developing countries. Developing Asia therefore has much at stake in the talks and has a strong interest in a positive and ambitious outcome. The key areas of market access negotiations are in industrial products, agriculture, and services. Each area raises distinct issues and nuances for various groups of developed and developing countries. In addition, the Doha Agenda includes the rules governing contingent forms of protection and regional trade agreements. Finally, "aid for trade" and trade facilitation are part of the agenda. Asia has a vital interest in multilateral liberalization prospering in the Doha talks.
