Foreign Trade Minister Anabel González presents her candidacy to head the World

first_imgNo related posts. GENEVA – Costa Rican Foreign Trade Minister Anabel González on Tuesday presented her plans for heading the World Trade Organization (WTO) to 156 members of the WTO General Council.“I think I meet all the requirements for this position, because I’ve been working in international trade for 25 years,” the minister said during a press conference.González said she wants to conclude negotiations of the Doha round, begun in 2001 and currently at an impasse.“I’m willing to assume the position of director-general with independence, passion and responsibility”,” she said.When questioned about a possible withdrawal in favor of another Latin American candidate, González said, “it’s still too early to consider it,” adding that, “it would be better to wait until all candidates speak before the General Council.”The three Latin American candidates were the first to appear before the WTO General Council. In addition to González, regional candidates include Mexico’s former trade minister, Herminio Blanco, and Brazilian diplomat Roberto Azevedo.A total of nine candidates aspire to lead the WTO – six men and three women – most of them ministers or former ministers in the governments of their respective countries. The successful candidate will replace Pascal Lamy from France.The WTO General Council is expected to make a final decision no later than May 31. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

I know Patricks deal is coming up — he needs to

first_img“I know Patrick’s deal is coming up — he needs to be compensated as the best corner in the game, which I feel he is,” he said. Fitz has since restructured his own contract and freed up cap space for the Cardinals, a move that presumably would help them redo Peterson’s deal if that’s what they want to do.And if it’s not, will Peterson consider holding out to get the contract he desires? He did recently hire a new agent, Joel Segal, who has had clients miss time due to contract squabbles. “I can’t speak on that right now,” he said. “Me and my agent, we haven’t talked about some of those possibilities. But we’ll have to wait and see what happens.”Your browser does not support iframes. “My plan is just to continue playing football at a high level,” Peterson said. “Because at the end of the day it will come. I have two more years left on my deal. I just want to continue playing lights-out football. At the end of the day, once I earn it — I won’t say it will be a relief, but it will be a joy to know that it’s time to be recognized. “I just want to continue playing at a high level, and once that day comes I’ll be ready for it. I believe I’ve done enough work to earn that.”As of now, Peterson is under contract for 2014 with a team option in 2015. In three seasons since being selected with the fifth overall pick out of LSU, Peterson has made the Pro Bowl three times and has emerged as one of the elite cornerbacks in the NFL. He’s intercepted 12 passes in his NFL career, and was assigned to cover the opponent’s top receiver on a weekly basis last season for the league’s sixth-ranked defense.The website ProFootballFocus.com ranked Peterson as the league’s 16th-best cornerback in 2013. At the very least, Peterson’s teammate Larry Fitzgerald said last week that he believes the cornerback’s time has come. Top Stories Last week, Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson said he would like a contract extension, but was kind of in a wait-and-see mode. “I’m under contract for two more years, so I want to continue playing great football,” he said. “Whenever (GM) Steve Keim and (team president) Michael Bidwill address me and my agent (about a contract extension), we’ll go from there.” The 23-year-old was asked about his contract again Tuesday, this time by ProFootballTalk. What would he do, they wondered, if the Cardinals didn’t approach him with a new deal?
