|Officials with the Canadian Wheat Board will be in Geneva next week attending the latest session of negotiations at the WTO ag talks. Chief trade representative Victor Jarjour says Saskatchewan director Larry Hill will be joining him overseas. Jarjour says their agenda is coming together with meetings planned with countries, like Canada, that are interested in the future of state trading enterprises. He notes all parties involved in the talks know what needs to be done in order to reach a draft agreement by the end of July deadline. Jarjour adds it remains to be seen if the political will, especially on the part of the United States, is there to do it.
