The 25th Anniversary of Conclusion of Uruguay Round in Montevideo

On 12 September the World Trade Organisation (WTO) marked the 25th anniversary of the conclusion of the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations, which ran from 1986 to 1994 and gave rise to the WTO in its current form.

What the anniversary obscures is the Doha Development Round launched in Qatar at the WTO meeting in November 2001, with its goal to finish by January 2005.
