Montreal Summit-WTO

Asked if the resolution of the Montreal Summit meant we were closer to being in a more optimistic frame of mind about the World Trade Organisation (WTO) talks in Hong Kong, the PMOS replied that what it showed was the value of identifying and pushing an issue and the Prime Minister would pay tribute to the efforts of Margaret Beckett and her team who had done so. We had moved the agenda forward this year on climate change, and this was not only our judgement, but also the judgement of many of those who attended the Montreal talks. It showed the value of not only identifying an issue, but also persisting with it. To that extent, it applied equally in trade, where whatever the outcome of Hong Kong turned out to be, the Prime Minister would push the agenda forward on it.
