Maran promises to protect Indian exports at WTO meet
Commerce and Industry Minister Murasoli Maran today assured exporters that the government would resist any attempt to change the equitable balance of trade between developing and developed countries at the coming Seattle Ministerial Conference on World Trade Organisation.
At a meeting with a delegation led by Federation of Indian Export Organisations president, Navratan Samdria, Maran said the government was aware of the problems arising out of non-implementation of agreed provisions of Uruguay WTO meet and the attempt by a section of nations to take up additional issues at the conference.
''India will fight to protect and safeguard the interest of its exporting community by ensuring that promises made at the earlier WTO meet are honoured.''
He said the government would protest against obstructions being created against developing nations by means of peak tariffs for exportable products.
