its citizens. To a greater extent, this becomes a secondary consideration. Some governments’ trade policies are meant to represent specific economic interest groups within their respective countries. On give and take arrangements, the governments negotiate policies that favor these groups and in return, they help the government on its political interests. Such arrangements greatly influence international trade talks. The negotiators hold hard-line positions. The roots of disappointment are to be found in local politics of main WTO members on the central mercantilist items of the Doha negotiation agenda like manufacturing as well as agriculture (Das, 2004).

Tackling environmental issues as of late is one of the most troubling items for negotiation. There is no common goal as concerning tackling climate change. Countries and regions are divided on how best to deal with this issue. Developed countries have maintained their stand, and so are the developing countries. Changing relationships and goals among the countries is another factor that influences Doha talks as most countries resort to regional trading blocs and agreements that they argue give them better representation and are more specific in dealing with regional issues and concerns. About half of the world trade is now conducted under Regional Trading Agreements (RTA) (Das, 2004). Some countries are also in the fear of backlash especially from NGOs back in their countries.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
