Chapter 6: Handling of WTO disputes: India’s experience

Enabling Developing Countries

Amrita Bahri

Extract

Chapter 6 reviews and analyses the characteristics, weaknesses and capacity-building potential of India’s purely informal and ad hoc PPP approach. The findings provided in this chapter are almost exclusively based on empirical research conducted by the author. Hence, its readers benefit from the first-hand insights received from the public and private sector officials directly involved in the handling of WTO disputes. The chapter also provides readers with answers to the following pertinent questions: 1. Do the public sector institutions in India engage industries in the handling of trade disputes? 2. How is the nature of government-industry partnership in India different from the partnerships examined in the previous chapters? 3. In practice, how and to what extent have the industries and the government worked together for the better management of trade disputes? 4. Which features of its PPP system have cost-effectively enhanced India’s dispute settlement capacity, and which ones have been ineffective or problematic? 5. Can other developing countries learn anything from India’s dispute settlement partnership experience?
