Abstract:
"The Uruguay Round is closing this week after a marathon of negotiations stretching well over seven years; so the timing of this Panel is exquisite from my viewpoint. The ceremony, besides, is in Marrakesh, an exotic place that sets our minds racing with thoughts of Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Indeed, one can imagine a movie being made of this historic occasion with Peter Ustinov cast as Peter Sutherland, the brilliant and portly new Director General of the GATT who finally brought the Round to successful conclusion, Dustin Hoffman playing our own inimitable Mickey Kantor, and perhaps Al Pacino as the elegant and suave Sir Leon Brittan of the European Union: the three principal players in the closing days of the Round."
