Real Doha trade talks must start now-U.S.

GENEVA, Jan 13 (Reuters) – Trading powers must get down to
real negotiations right away if there is to be any hope of
concluding the long-running Doha talks to open up global
commerce this year, a top U.S. negotiator said on Thursday.

To reach a deal, said the U.S. ambassador to the World Trade
Organization (WTO) Michael Punke, big emerging countries like
China, Brazil and India should accept that their booming
economies meant they must open up their markets more.
