Pruning India’s Sensitive Lists under SAFTA: A Comment

Published on 16 April 2011

This article extends the economic rationale to prune India’s sensitive lists under the South Asian FTA as discussed in Taneja et al (2011), supplemented by additional reasons to develop well-functioning global production networks. The framework discussed here can be used for other SAARC nations as well.

The removal of high tariff barriers for identified products for value chains and the reduction of associated transaction costs can therefore be a stimulus for developing trade policy in south Asia and capitalise on the existing synergies in intra-regional trade in the region.
