G-4 and G-6 Ministers to meet in New Delhi to review progress of Doha round on 12th April

(Press Information Bureau)

The Trade Ministers of the G-4 group of countries – viz., India, Brazil, the United States and the European Commission (EC) – are scheduled to meet in New Delhi on Thursday, 12th April, 2007 to review the progress of the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations since the resumption of the negotiations. 

It may be recalled that the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations at the World Trade Organisation (WTO), which had been suspended in July 2006 on account of a lack of consensus largely on domestic support and market access in agriculture, have been resumed on 7th February 2007. 

This will be the first formal meeting of the Trade Ministers of the G-4 since July 2006. 

The meeting of the G-4 will be followed immediately by a meeting of the Ministers of the G-6 (viz., the G-4 plus Japan and Australia) on the same day i.e., 12th April. 

The Ministers are expected to discuss the areas of emerging convergence among the countries as well as the steps to be taken to contribute in a constructive manner to the multilateral process, so as to enable a successful conclusion of the Doha Round.
