03 July 2006

Chennai: The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has "expressed solidarity" with India's negotiating stand at the WTO. In a statement the industry body has said that the G-20 has demonstrated firmly that it will not compromise on the development aspect of the Doha Round.

R.V. Kanoria, chairman of the CII committee of WTO, and the confederation's past president and N. Kumar, who are in Geneva as part of the official delegation, have noted in the statement that development "is at the heart of the Doha Round."

The G-20 should continue to remain firm on special products, special safeguard measures and sensitive products, it said. The "CII believes that unless domestic support, export subsidy and market access are addressed simultaneously along with flexibilities, the round will not progress," it said.
