European Parliament resolution on suspension of the negotiations on the Doha Development Agenda (DDA) 
B6‑0484

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Articles 36, 27 and 133 thereof,

–  having regard to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Doha Ministerial Declaration of 14 November 2001,

–  having regard to the Decision adopted by the General Council on the Doha Work Programme on 1 August 2004,

–  having regard to Rule 108(5) of its Rules of Procedure,

A.  whereas the multilateral trading system embodied in the World Trade Organisation has contributed significantly to economic growth, development and employment throughout the past 50 years,

B.  whereas international trade can play a major role in the promotion of economic development and the alleviation of poverty,

C.  whereas a failure to conclude negotiations in 2006 carries a risk that the Doha Round will collapse, which, in turn, could challenge the credibility of the multilateral trading system and result in a shift towards bilateral and regional trade agreements, which often accentuate imbalances between the developed and the developing world,

D.  whereas the Doha Round must deliver pro-development outcomes in all areas under negotiation, especially in the interests of poorer and vulnerable developing countries,

1.  Is deeply concerned at the decision to suspend the DDA negotiations sine die;

2.  Strongly regrets the low level of ambition which threatens the ability to deliver any meaningful result for the DDA;

3.  Urges therefore a greater commitment on the part of all major players, including the EU, the US and the emerging economies;

4.  Is concerned that a failure to reach an agreement on the DDA would in turn represent the collapse of the present multilateral trading system;

5.  Points out that failure in multilateral negotiations and a shift to bilateral/regional agreements would lead to an unequal process of liberalisation and uneven development and would thus adversely affect the least developed countries in particular;

6.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission and the WTO.
