Research chief slammed for WTO role
News||15 June 1999|update 13|
NGOs at the WTO High Level Symposium on Trade and Development in March signed a statement expressing outrage at the way that Paul Collier (Director, Development Research Group, World Bank) chaired the session on "Linkages between trade and development policies". They complained that he gave more time to the pro-liberalisation speakers than the critics, and made a long concluding speech presenting his own views instead of providing a chairman's summary of the proceedings.
See Third World Resurgence, No 104/105 for more details of the incident and the subsequent exchange of correspondence.
