There Is No Trade King; Lamy on Why He Wants to Run the 'Medieval' WTO
Byline: Karen Lowry Miller
Pascal Lamy has been at the center of the globalization storm. As European trade commissioner the last five years, he was a key player when riotous protests disrupted the Seattle trade summit in 1999, and when developing nations abandoned the Doha round of talks in Cancun 16 months ago. After the Doha disaster, Lamy blasted the "medieval" ways of the World Trade Organization. Last week he formally announced his candidacy to become director-general of the WTO when Supachai Panitchpakdi of Thailand steps down in September. At the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Lamy discussed trade and his candidacy with NEWSWEEK's Karen Lowry Miller. Excerpts:
