India vows to protect and promote WTO

Cover Story, India Investment Journal January Edition
India’s Minister for Commerce and Industry, Suresh Prabhu, has taken a vehement stand in favour of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and told ‘India Investment Journal’ that the US will come around to its views on food security for the world’s poor.

India has been fighting a battle to protect what it believes are the basic principles of multilateralism on which the World Trade Organisation (WTO) is built. Commerce and industry minister Suresh Prabhu was in the UK in January, just weeks after a fraught ministerial meeting of the organisation in Buenos Aires which ended in no substantial agreement.
