The successful launching of a comprehensive round of negotiations will be the single, most important event in international trade this year. I urge our communique contain a vigorous, unequivocal endorsement for launching a new round with a comprehensive agenda, in September. Delegations in Geneva will go over the text of our communique very carefully, and they will judge our determination by both the tone and substance of our statement. We therefore must clearly set forth our desire to begin the new round, without delay.
