for Ministry of Commerce & Industry | Date - 04-04-2006

Shri Kamal Nath, Union Minister of Commerce & Industry, will inaugurate an International Conference being organised by the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER) on “WTO and the Doha Round: The way Forward” here on Thursday, 6th April, 2006. The two-day Conference is proposed as a track-II event where leading international experts, academicians and negotiators will interact and brainstorm on issues relating to the current Doha Round of WTO multilateral trade negotiations in order to find a way forward.

The Conference, says ICRIER, comes just 3 weeks ahead of the April 30 deadline set for the ongoing negotiations by which time the modalities for negotiations on agriculture and non-agricultural market access (NAMA) are targeted for finalisation. The Conference will aim at eliciting views from leading academicians and negotiators so as to come up with ideas on negotiating modalities which would enable member countries to take the Doha Round forward, according to ICRIER.
