You may have recently read that the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) Dispute Settlement Panel, on 31 October 2019, ruled that India’s export subsidy schemes, including the Special Economic Zones (SEZs), the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS), the Export Oriented Units (EOU) Scheme, and the Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG) Scheme, were inconsistent with the WTO’s global trade norms and that India’s export subsidy practices stood in violation of WTO’s rules.
We are pleased to invite you to a webinar in which the ruling by the WTO Dispute Settlement Panel on India’s export subsidy schemes will be discussed in detail. The objective of the webinar is to provide insights into the panel’s findings, potential options available to Government of India and the manner in which trade should prepare itself for the change in light of the ruling and proposed future road map that Government will adopt.
