Members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) launched the Doha Round of negotiations in 2001 amid pressures by the developing countries to make the WTO more development friendly. The focus of the negotiations was on the agreements covering four key areas, namely, agriculture, the non-agricultural market access, services, and intellectual property rights. The major distinguishing feature of the Doha Round was the strong presence of the developing countries on the negotiating table. For the first time in the history of the multilateral trading system, these countries had formed coalitions, both formal and informal, in order to articulate their interests. The proposals made by these countries had the potential of fundamentally altering the dynamics of the global trading system by providing the developing countries a much larger share in the trade volumes. And, this was to happen, keeping in view the development priorities of the developing countries.
