||Soundbite by Vital Moreira (in ENGLISH) saying that this is a great moment, both for the WTO and for the world trade system; for the WTO because this is the first agreement in almost two decades of life of the Organisation; secondly, for the world trade system because after the Uruguay round, this is the first piece of the Doha round which was inaugurated ten years ago; and thirdly, this is a package which is addressed particularly to the developing countries and least developed countries; therefore there are three important reasons to be very glad indeed;
saying that, as the Head of the Delegation of the European Parliament, he thinks the EU has had an excellent role, a very positive one in brokering this agreement; therefore he is very excited to be there as Member of the European Parliament and head of the Parliamentary Delegation of the European Union.
