Discussions on breaking the impasse between the US and China are continuing following last month's landmark meeting of WTO members. This column argues that allowing Doha to languish for years is deeply dangerous. The author asserts that failure to conclude Doha this year would put a dagger at the heart of the multilateral system. With the rise of China, the decline of US trade leadership, turmoil in the Middle East, and a damaged and imbalanced global economy, the world needs multilateralism more than ever.
