Doha and Globalization

Editorial in center-right O Estado de S. Paulo (07/16) says: "The
governments will give an ominous sign all over the world if Doha
Round trade negotiations are hindered in a new impasse, adverted WTO
director general Pascal Lamy...The globalization will not stop. The
process will continue, moved by factors such as technological
innovation, political changes and business practices in evolution.
Probably the result will be better if the trade integration follows
in an orderly way... Emerging economies, Brazil included, are on the
list of major beneficiaries of the international economic
integration. The Brazilian government knows that and bet many cards
on the success of the multilateral negotiation. The new cards put on
the table...are more acceptable than the previous ones in several
aspects. But they still have traps, such as the possibility of
increasing the list of agricultural products "sensitive" and
subject to protectionism. Brazilian negotiators must dedicate good
part of their efforts to try to eliminate these traps. If they
succeed there will be good possibilities of an agreement on
agricultural and industrial market access. WTO technicians showed
uneasiness before the international crisis capable of noticeably
reducing the trade growth. Another good reason, according to them,
to conclude the Doha Round and create grounds for a new phase of
global prosperity."
