World Trade Organization Ministerial Conference of 2003
The Fifth Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organization, also known as the WTO Fifth Ministerial Conference and abbreviated as MC5, was held at the Cancún Centro de Convenciones, Cancún, Mexico from September 10 to September 14, 2003.
The conference was aimed at forging agreement on the Doha Development Round. An alliance of 22 southern states, the G20 (led by India, China1 and Brazil), resisted demands from the North for agreements on the so-called "Singapore issues" and called for an end to agricultural subsidies within the EU and the US. The talks broke down without progress.
