WTO MC11: India counters USA criticism on its developing country status

WTO talks set to collapse as US refuses to engage on food security issue

ANFACO-CECOPESCA Secretary General Juan Vieites will once again represent the interests of the sector in this XI Ministerial Conference of the WTO, which will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from December 10 to 13. "We cannot sustain a situation in which new rules can only apply to the few, and that others will be given a pass in the name of self-proclaimed development status".

Lighthizer said WTO members should be troubled that so many members appear to believe that they would be better off with exemptions to the rules.

A vast majority of the 164 WTO member nations-led by India, China and South Africa-are demanding that the final declaration of the WTO's highest decision-making body reaffirms commitment to multilateralism and rules-based trading system as well as negotiations with development agenda at the center, PTI reported.

On the Dispute Settlement Mechanism, an overwhelming majority of the WTO members have questioned efforts by the U.S. to block the appointment of judges to the appellate body-a move that they say would undermine the DSM.

Commerce and industry minister Suresh Prabhu on Sunday said that India is pushing for an improvement over the Bali package for its public procurement programme for foodgrains and seeking to build a coalition of developing countries to push its case and block moves for putting in place global rules for e-commerce. During the meeting with Prabhu, Malmstrom flagged the need to start negotiations on e-commerce, with the minister responding b saying that the time was not ripe and the current mechanism of discussions at the WTO headquarters should continue.

"While in India, we are proud of our GDP and growth rates of recent years, propelled by innovative economic policies of my government, we can not ignore that India is home to more than 600 million poor people", Prabhu said.

The report added that "in terms of post-Buenos Aires work on these two topics, India and the European Union have communicated their intention to re-engage on services trade facilitation and online transactions, respectively, after the Ministerial Conference".
