Kipkorir Aly Azad Rana, deputy director general of the World Trade Organization (WTO), believes that the textile quotas will most likely get eliminated from January 1, 2005. His optimism over the elimination of textile quotas comes even as certain industry associations of the developed world have reportedly expressed keenness for extending the quota regime to 2007. Addressing a meeting on the future of the Doha negotiations, he held that the WTO is finding imaginative ways to take the multilateral negotiations forward. The aim is to have a framework agreement on agriculture and non-agricultural market access issues by July 2004 that could be built upon.
