Trade ministers of the G-4 group of countries - India, Brazil, the United States and the European Commission (EC) are scheduled to meet in New Delhi on Thursday to review the progress of the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations.
The Doha Round of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) was suspended in July 2006 due to a lack of consensus, largely on domestic support and market access in agriculture. It resumed in February this year.
This will be the first formal meeting of the trade ministers of this grouping since the negotiations were resumed.
Ministers of the G-6 (G-4 plus Japan and Australia) will meet on Thursday and will discuss areas of emerging convergence among the countries as well as steps to contribute to the multilateral process, so as to enable a successful conclusion of the Doha Round.
