The report notes that if India’s high rates of economic growth are to
be sustained, reforms need to be deepened, in particular to address
infrastructure bottlenecks such as transport and electricity, which
continue to constrain growth. In addition further structural reforms
will be required in agriculture, to address the sector’s relatively low
productivity and the problems faced by marginal farmers.
Continued structural reform, the report notes, together with greater
investment in physical and human capital would also help to generate
much needed productive employment for new entrants to the labour force.
The report, along with a policy statement by the Government of India,
will be the basis for the fourth Trade Policy Review (TPR) of India by
the Trade Policy Review Body of the WTO on 23 and 25 May 2007.

Trade Policy Reviews are an exercise, mandated in the WTO agreements,
in which member countries’ trade and related policies are examined and
evaluated at regular intervals. Significant developments that may have
an impact on the global trading system are also monitored. For each
review, two documents are prepared: a policy statement by the
government of the member under review, and a detailed report written
independently by the WTO Secretariat. These two documents are then
discussed by the WTO’s full membership in the Trade Policy Review Body
(TPRB). These documents and the proceedings of the TPRB’s meetings are
published shortly afterwards.
