All WTO member countries must take up reforms, says Piyush Goya

@PiyushGoyalOffc
Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal today said that all member countries must take up reforms of the World Trade Organisation and not deal with issues in a piecemeal manner.

He was speaking at an international dialogue on South-South and Triangular Cooperation in New Delhi. He said, all member countries of the WTO must re-engage to ensure that the rule-based, transparent, and non-discriminatory governance that free-trade requires is taken forward honestly.

Mr Goyal said, the policies of protectionism being followed by some countries in the developed world are affecting engagement between countries for trade in goods, services and protection of investments. He said, India is committed to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Mr Goyal said, South-South and Triangular Cooperation will help the developed world become a part of the developing world’s growth agenda. South-South cooperation is a broad framework of collaboration among countries of the South in the political, economic, social, cultural, environmental and technical domains.
