In 1986, the Uruguay round of international trade talks was launched with the purpose of reducing trade barriers in such areas as agriculture, textiles, and manufactured goods. Over the years, 108 countries have participated in the negotiations, including the world’s major industrial nations. Since the talks began, problems emerged as countries jockeyed to protect their national interests. Currently, negotiations are stalled over a dispute between the U.S. and the European Community over cuts in farming subsidies, cuts which are being demanded by the United States, and opposed by the Europeans. The committee reviewed a compromise proposal offered last month by Arthur Dunkel, the director general of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), the organization overseeing the talks. Among other things, the Dunkel plan calls for a cut in domestic farm supports. close
