Thank you for stopping by and giving us your thoughts, Adel. Have you ever been to a WTO meeting? If you have you will know that trade is rigged in favour of the United States and Europe. Amr Moussa and I discussed that extensively. It's essential to enable farmers in the developing world to compete with subsidized European and US farmers. If not, how will for instance Africa be able to trade itself out of poverty?

Glad you do, Meredith. The more Fair Trade products are sold the better for farmers world wide.

Do you have Marks & Spencers in Doha? If so you will most likely find Fair Trade products there. You do in Kuwait and Dubai.

Interesting example of a sustainable bank, Jeannette. Presumably they don't do anything unethical?:-) Not surprised you, like me, are prepared to pay more for Fair Trade products.

Glad you do, Michele. Does the certification you have in California for organic farmers work? In many Western European countries they don't and you end up just paying more money.

Glad you agree with me, Beth. But Fair Trade products are definitely becoming increasingly important to affluent consumers. Have a feeling we have had Fair Trade products much longer in Europe than you have in the US. Used to buy them in London, UK. more than 12 years ago.
