Chair says “time to close the deal” on government procurement

At the end of three days of intensive consultations among the parties to the plurilateral Government Procurement Agreement (GPA), the chairman of the GPA Committee, Nicholas Niggli, said on 18 October that important progress had been made on the objective of concluding the negotiations in time for the 8th WTO Ministerial Conference in mid-December.

The chairman called on members to make the necessary effort and use creativity and flexibility to reach this goal after 10 years of negotiations to modernize the GPA text. "A conclusion to the long-running GPA renegotiation is now truly at hand and the time to do it is in December this year in the framework of the coming WTO Ministerial", said Nicholas Niggli in his concluding remarks to GPA delegates. . . .
