Africa Commission Hits Out Over Trade Talks

A high-profile international commission which advocates for Africa has criticized the "glacial" progress of talks on world trade reform that would enable the continent to take more responsibility for its own development. At the same time, it is calling for a massive increase in arable land to be put under irrigation, and for billions of dollars in additional foreign aid.
