All national dailies reported on Saturday that the WTO ministerial meeting concluded after adopting a ministers’ declaration for the first time in about six and a half years on Friday. Nikkei said the trade ministers agreed to exercise restraint in restricting food exports and to regulate fisheries subsidies that could lead to overfishing. The paper said although the WTO has been criticized for indecisiveness due to conflicts among the member states, the ministers were able to reach agreements in multiple sectors through nightlong negotiations and extended sessions.
