BRIDGES Weekly Trade News Digest - Vol. 10, Number 21 14 June 2006:
The Doha Round of trade negotiations was put into deep freeze on 24 July, after a meeting of ministers from six key trading nations collapsed over divisions on how to cut farm subsidies and tariffs.
It is not clear when -- or if -- the talks, which started nearly five years ago, will resume. There is no timetable for doing so. Kamal Nath , India 's commerce minister, said that the round, though not dead, "is between intensive care and the crematorium."
