Mr. Alan Clark

The forthcoming round of multilateral trade negotiations in the general agreement on tariffs and trade has been touched on in several recent meetings of the Foreign Affairs Council. This month's meeting of the FAC on 21 and 22 April is expected to consider a Commission working paper on the broad strategy to be adopted in preparing the launch of the new round.
