India and the WTO
Aaditya Mattoo Robert M. Stern
| Price: $ 35
¿India¿s trade policy establishment is perceived to be somewhat wary of multilateral engagement, even though India is implementing substantial economic and trade policy reforms. Some essays in this excellent and well-researched volume may throw light on this paradox. More important, the essays take a hard look at India¿s interests and concerns with respect to international trade. They suggest ways that India could deploy its domestic reform agenda in the Doha Round negotiations to secure concessions from its trading partners, while using multilateral engagement to reinforce the domestic reform process and enhance the process¿s credibility. The book should prove of considerable value to policymakers, market participants, and other stakeholders.¿
- B.K. Zutshi
This book is designed to clarify India¿s interests in the World Trade Organization¿s Doha Development Agenda and to provide a blueprint for its strategy in multilateral negotiations. The focus is on facilitating domestic and external policy reforms that can serve to bolster India¿s participation in the multilateral trading system and to enhance the effectiveness of India¿s trade and related policies in achieving developmental goals.
