Agricultural trade remains highly politicised and securing agreement on further change is one of the most critical and difficult tasks in the Doha Round. There has been a shift from a EU-US power duopoly in the Uruguay Round to an oligopolistic form of decision-making that incorporates the G-20 representing emerging countries. Market access has been the most difficult issue to resolve and internal opposition to a settlement is growing in the US and EU. Nevertheless, a settlement is still achievable, but not at Hong Kong.
