NEW DELHI: Developing nations, including India, are facing a double disadvantage at the World Trade Organisation’s (WTO) Dispute Settlement Body (DSB), according to a senior government official.
Commerce Secretary Rita Teaotia said these nations are challenged not only by the lack of a sufficient pool of trade law experts to represent them effectively at the DSB but also by certain efforts to bring within the body’s ambit non-trade issues such as labour and environment, reports the Hindu. She was speaking at a function organised by the Centre for WTO Studies at the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade on Monday.
