The EU Trade Commissioner, Pascal Lamy, met with ministers from the G20 on December 11 th and 12 th 2003 in Brazil, but although the dialogue was described as ‘fruitful and positive' no substantive results or concrete compromises were reported. Comment: The lack of progress in these discussions is illustrated by the fact that Commissioner Lamy's speech to the meeting has not even been posted on the Commission website. The meeting needs to be seen in the light of the USDA perspective that the EU is launching a ‘hearts and minds' campaign to win over developing countries to EU positions.
