Poor Nations Are Still Waiting for U.S.-European Trade Accord [NYT]

Research fellow Kim Elliott was quoted in this New York Times article about the failure of progress by international trade negotiators in Geneva.

From the article:

Ms. Elliott at the Center for Global Development said she was surprised that the United States had not tried to revive interest in the talks by offering some small new concessions on farm subsidies.

"Are they really committed to getting this done, and getting it done this year?" Ms. Elliott asked. "I have to conclude from this weekend that they are not really committed."
