Manufacturers Support USTR’s Actions to Address India’s Discriminatory Practices
Washington, D.C., 02/10/14 - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Vice President of International Economic Affairs Linda Dempsey issued this statement following United States Trade Representative (USTR) Michael Froman’s announcement that the United States plans to challenge India’s forced localization solar policy before the World Trade Organization:
“India’s forced localization policies unfairly discriminate against manufacturers of a wide array of products, including solar cells and modules. The NAM welcomes today’s announcement by USTR Michael Froman as an important step toward leveling the playing field for solar equipment manufacturers and workers in the United States. We look forward to similar concrete action to address Indian government policies that are discriminating against other products and sectors.”
