In 2011, the General Council oversaw the progress of the Doha Round negotiations on the basis of reports from the Director-General in his capacity as Chair of the Trade Negotiations Committee. The General Council also heard the Director-General’s annual report on accessions as well as his report on the development assistance aspects of cotton. Ahead of the December Ministerial Conference, the General Council agreed on three broad themes – the ‘Elements for Political Guidance’. These were the importance of the multilateral trading system, trade and development, and the Doha Development Agenda.
