New Delhi: India Tuesday reiterated that an early conclusion of the Doha round of World Trade Organisation (WTO) talks was in the country`s "best interest".
"India has always been a strong protagonist of the multilateral trading system. We have consistently maintained that an early conclusion of the Doha round is in our best interest," Commerce Minister Anand Sharma said in a statement in the Rajya Sabha in response to a calling attention motion on the present status of WTO negotiations.
"The main negotiating issues and key elements from India`s perspective in the Doha round are to honour development, dimension, protect the interest of poor farmers and industry and seek greater market opportunities for its farmers and industry," Sharma said.
