In thanking members for their decision, the government of Indonesia said: “In the situation where crisis is still hampering the global economy, Indonesia continues to believe that the multilateral trading system has a significant role in fostering fair global trade, sustaining the world economic growth, eradicating poverty and creating job opportunities. In this regard, the next Ministerial conference will, therefore, be very important to re-energise the negotiation process and the progress achieved so far and to strengthen the multilateral trading system. Finally, Indonesia fervently hopes that the exotic ambiance of the land of the gods and goddesses, the warm weather and the hospitality of the people of Bali will rejuvenate and renew the constructive spirit of the Doha Development Agenda negotiation in the WTO.”
