Source: Deal on WTO Doha Rounds May Be Close

World leaders have been talking for years on liberalizing trade


 A deal to boost international trade is closer to consensus than it has been for months, a source close to the World Trade Organization (WTO) said Wednesday.

"The chances of reaching an agreement are much greater today than six months or a year ago," said the source, referring to trade facilitation talks known as the Doha Round.
