Only One Candidate For WTO D-G Job

It looks as though Pascal Lamy is set for another 4 years at the WTO.  His was the only nomination received when nominations closed on 31 December.

I am pleased about this.  I like Lamy.  The problems with the WTO Round are not his fault.  If anyone can get this thing finished Lamy can.  But as I have been saying for ages, we won’t see any real breakthrough until we have the new US Administration well in place.  Unfortunately the scandal around Governor Richardson and the gap this has left for Commerce Secretary will unstettle things a little on the trade policy front.
