SET­TING THE AGENDA THE 11TH Min­is­te­rial Con­fer­ence of the World Trade Or­gan­i­sa­tion ( WTO) starts in Buenos Aires in mid- De­cem­ber. De­vel­oped na­tions want the agenda to in­clude in­vest­ment fa­cil­i­ta­tion and e- com­merce. The de­vel­op­ing world wants WTO to bring un­ful­filled agenda items aimed at a more equitable global trade to a suc­cess­ful con­clu­sion. The aim to es­tab­lish a panel on e- com­merce to con­duct prepa­ra­tions for and carry out ne­go­ti­a­tions on trade-re­lated as­pects of elec­tronic com­merce by a group of WTO mem­bers in mid- Oc­to­ber should be seen in this con­text. In­dia and 43 African coun­tries have op­posed the move.
