Nusa Dua (Indonesia) (AFP) - Commerce ministers engaged in an eleventh-hour flurry of diplomacy on Friday, hoping to save a WTO package amid stark warnings that failure could permanently cripple the global trade body. New World Trade Organization chief Roberto Azevedo of Brazil is pushing for agreement on a modest package of measures at a conference on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, which ends Friday. Top officials were bargaining "through the night" and into Friday, WTO spokesman Keith Rockwell said. The ministerial conference opened Tuesday under a cloud due to India's insistence that it be allowed to stockpile and subsidise grain for its millions of hungry poor.
