What is the role of India as a whole in the Council of Ministers and what is its impact on India? Find out in this special report.
At the 12th Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organization (WTO) on food security, there is a clear difference between developing countries and developed countries, including India, on the need for food security and the availability of vaccines at affordable prices. The conference expressed concern over the situation in Kodak, the Russia-Ukraine war, food shortages in international markets and rising prices. India wants a permanent solution to food security, vaccines.
India expressed outrage.
The most important issue for India is the security of the country’s food procurement program at the minimum base price. India needs to find a permanent solution to the problem of public storage for food security. The ministerial conference is discussing a number of issues, the most important of which is food security. India, on the other hand, has expressed outrage at the WTO’s failure to meet the challenges of epidemics. India has also criticized the WTO for playing a cautious role when some pharmaceutical companies were considering profiteering in the face of corona virus epidemics. Basically, India has applied for a patent waiver.
This was stated by Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goel.
Commerce Minister Piyush Goel also advised developing and poor countries to focus on treatment and diagnosis instead of giving concessions and borrowing from developed countries in such difficult times. Goel also said that unless the epidemic is managed, it will be difficult to cope. Developing countries and developed countries are facing each other at the WTO Ministerial Meeting. While developed countries think about trade, developing countries think about the interests of their citizens and all those who struggle to survive. What decisions do both parties make in the interest of ‘Vasudhayu Katambakam’? It will be important to see.
