ABSTRACT: Amidst several starts and stops, most nations continue the multilateral-trade negotiating process through the Doha Development Agenda of the World Trade Organization. The negotiations focus on the areas of increased market access for agricultural products, decreasing levels of domestic agricultural support, and the reduction and elimination of export subsidies. The current status of the negotiations and their relevance for U.S. agriculture will be presented in this symposium. Implications for applied research and extension education will be discussed.
