India's Liberalisation Experience
Hostage to WTO?
of the impact of the country`s World Trade Oraganisation (WTO) membership on the
same. The collection of articles by subject experts recognises that the changes
mandated by WTO membership are but one of the three-pronged liberlisation measures
that the country has been subjected toin the external, domestic (industrial
policies) and financial sectors. The lucid analyses bear out that rather than
being WTO-induced, external liberalisation of most sectors has been part of India`s
general economic reform programme, having been shaped by domestic compulsions.
India`s Liberalisation Experience: Hostage to the WTO? also analyses
how the country has coped with and benefited from its obligations and rights
as a WTO member. It attempts to evaluate the impact of the domestic reforms
on the country`s economy and the implications thereof on its performance as
a WTO negotiator. It tries to dispel the myths regarding the impact of international
trade negotiations on India`s ongoing reform processes and its developmental
and poverty/livelihood concerns. Thus, it will appeal not only to WTO experts,
but also to trade policy analysts, academicians, research students, policy-makers,
scholars and economists.
