". Whilst trade is an important tool for development and a means of reducing poverty, it is clearly impossible to attain real progress towards these objectives unless fair rules are established at international level. Finding ways of ensuring that trade policy helps to resolve the poverty issue, however, is no easy task. Accordingly, opening up borders to international trade brings highly significant benefits for the development of societies. Poorer countries are clearly not always prepared to protect themselves against any adverse effects or to take advantage of any opportunities that may arise. I therefore feel that the minor changes to the WTO trade negotiations as regards the environment, farming, raw materials, public services, health and industrialisation could help people enjoy more of the benefits of trade. Lastly, our role should continue to be that of promoting support for development and democracy in developing countries with a view to delivering decent working conditions and opportunities for growth for the people of those countries."@en1
