WTO and Indian Agriculture (3 Parts)
WTO was established to promote free and fair trade among the major trading nations of the world. Technology, training, techno-infrastructure and trade are four important pillars of sustainable agriculture. The Marakesh Agreement which led to the birth of WTO, has proved to be an instrument for regularizing the very heavy subsidies given to farmers by industrialized countries through their inclusion in the green and blue box provisions. The Doha round of negotiations is therefore experiencing serious differences of opinion between industrialized and developing countries with reference to the provisions essential for safeguarding the livelihoods security of small and marginal farmers. The present book has been divided into three parts, dealt with great clarity, the various implications of farm exports and imports for the well being of farmers as well as the Indian economy as a whole.
