It is being reported that negotiators failed to reach agreement on expanding the scope of the ITA today in Geneva (the failure is being attributed to a dispute between China and Korea/Taiwan on inclusion of certain products). While this is not a good sign, it does not mean that ITA expansion is dead. Instead, the negotiations will likely pick up again at some point next year.
If you have any questions about ITA expansion, please let us know.
