reconciling the interests of developed and developing countries is a big challenge Secondthere remains a wide gap between the bound and applied tariffs of some large developing countries

differentiate among developing countries The present arrangement allows some advanced developing countries to avoid making significant concessions while imposing burdensome obligations on poor countries Fourthheterogeneity among developing countries presents a problem The panels report signals a paradigm shift for the future of global trade It has recognised many new trends and provided a reality check before the ministerial conference: firstit acknowledges that PTAs are here to stay The report warns that PTAs add to trade costscan be exclusionaryand may also lead to segmentation of the world economy It mentions that since the 1980sthere has been a rapid proliferation of PTAs and BITs (bilateral investment treaties) Howeverperhaps recognising this as a consequence of the disenchantment with the Doha Roundthe panel recommends members explore ways in which PTAs could converge within the multilateral system Since India has negotiated many bilateral and regional agreementsthis will give it leverage The panel points out that with gradual fall in most tariffsNTMs are increasingly influencing trade outcomes andin many casesrestricting trade HoweverNTMs can no longer be ignored since domestic policy compulsions could be based on healthsafety or environmental grounds Thusthe effort should be to ensure NTMs do not disproportionately mitigate trade benefits The panel has highlighted the organic relationship between imports and exports for a national economy Pointing out that the share of intermediate goods in trade has risen to 50-60 per cent of total merchandise tradeand the share of import content of exports has risen from about 20 per cent in the 1970s to about 40 per cent todaythe report states that if a country is restricting importsit might also be frustrating its own exports This is important for countries like Indiawhich use tariff measures for a variety of domestic policy considerations Finallythe report shows that the economies of developing countries now constitute about half of the world GDPand that while the share of North-North trade has shrunk from 56 per cent in 1990 to 36 per cent in 2011the share of North-South and South-South trade expanded from 33 per cent to 38 per cent and from 8 per cent to 24 per cent respectively If this continuesby 2020 the share of South-South trade will increase to 34 per cent This should give the South more power in Bali The panels recommendations could lend impetus to the Doha Round agenda The WTOs strength is its principles and processes Through its emphasis on principles of national treatment and non-discriminationit provides a strong forum for negotiating By providing recourse in cases of violationsit underlines a rules-based system that enables international trade to work as a prime mover of growth and development If the Doha Round failsthe existing distortions in trade will be exacerbatedand developing countries will find it difficult to have a level-playing field There is a risk that the WTO processes will be marred by litigation instead of legislationand dispute settlement will substitute rule-making If the multilateral system is not allowed to

series (PTI Photo) Related News Lasith Malinga put a blue plastic marker at yorker length and went full tilt ‘Laying down the marker’ to achieve the desired length is a common method for the fast bowlers But Malinga’s training session at the Pallekele International Stadium on Wednesday ahead of the second ODI exuded a sort of match intensity From a distance of about 75 yards it felt like it was a desperate attempt to find those yorkers again Sri Lanka’s senior-most bowler a limited-overs legend has looked a pale shadow of his former self ever since his return to the ODIs following an 18-month knee injury lay-off Batters used to dread his yorkers earlier Now they sometimes take the mickey out of him like Virat Kohli did in the penultimate over of the first ODI in Dambulla It was Malinga’s 200th ODI and he conceded 52 runs in eight overs without a wicket Dambulla wasn’t a case in isolation Between his ODI debut in July 2004 and November 2015 when he suffered a bone bruise on his left knee Malinga had 291 wickets in 191 matches including seven five-fors Over the past three-and-a-half months after his return the fast bowler who will turn 34 on Monday has only seven scalps in nine matches with an average of 6171 His career average is 2857 Faced with questions related to Malinga’s waning prowess Sri Lanka coach Nic Pothas tried to put things in perspective “Since the Champions Trophy Lasith had nine catches dropped off his bowling So his stats would look differently (without those dropped catches) The game against Pakistan (in the Champions Trophy) we could have won it easily if we held those catches” Three catches were dropped off Malinga’s bowling in that win-or-bust game that saw Pakistan scrape through to the knockouts and go on to win the tournament In his first over Danushka Gunathilaka grassed Azhar Ali with the batsman yet to open his account But the slips towards the back end of the innings proved more costly Chasing 237 for victory Pakistan were 193/7 after 38 overs when Malinga returned for his third spell Third ball of the over was slower on the middle stump that outfoxed Sarfraz Ahmed who spooned a simple catch to Thisara Perera at mid-on The fielder somehow managed to grass it Malinga attempted a slower bouncer in his next over and Sarfraz top-edged it to deep square leg Running in about 10 yards and diving forward Seekkuge Prasanna couldn’t hold on to the chance Sarfraz remained unbeaten on 61 to take Pakistan to the semifinal as Sri Lanka crashed out Even in the first ODI against India Sri Lanka captain Upul Tharanga dropped Shikhar Dhawan off Malinga But by then the batsman had raced to 118 and the game was done and dusted In between Sri Lankan fielders had dropped a few more off their premier fast bowler during their 3-2 home series loss against Zimbabwe All said and done Malinga has now become a touchy subject in Sri Lankan cricket The sports minister rapped him and the whole team over the lack of fitness after the Champions Trophy He now generally bowls medium pace and stretches between almost every delivery as the match progresses Coach’s backing Pothas and Tharanga didn’t deny Malinga’s slide but backed the veteran quick “Malinga’s form has gone down from what it was two-three years ago Any cricketer goes through this phase He returned to ODIs after being out for about 18 months But since his return he has been unable to produce those match-winning performances; mainly because catches have been dropped off his bowling But his presence in the team is a big boon to the young fast bowlers who can learn a lot from him” Tharanga said at the pre-match presser that started off with the team management reading out a joint statement and the Sri Lanka Cricket media head asking the scribes to limit the question-answer session to the second ODI only Kohli too agrees that after a point age becomes a factor At the same time however he pointed out that this could just be a lean patch for Malinga “Obviously age is always a factor in sport I cannot speak for Lasith but everyone wants to keep up with their peak fitness and manage their bodies well through the course of their career” he said Kohli in fact was sympathetic to him “When you look at his bowling action and the kind of success he has had for such a long period of time is actually remarkable With the dynamics of his bowling it’s not very natural It’s very easy to say that he is not bowling as well anymore but it could just be a phase” the India captain added Somehow Malinga didn’t look this stale during his 12 matches for Mumbai Indians in the last IPL where he picked 11 wickets at an economy rate of 852 But T20 cricket is only four overs per game for a bowler and the Sri Lankan had Jasprit Bumrah and Mitchell McClenaghan for company When he plays for his national team Malinga is Sri Lanka’s only strike bowler upfront and at the death And unless he regains his mojo it’s going to be downhill for the hosts in this series Sri Lanka have to win two out of the five matches to secure direct qualification for the 2019 World Cup For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten

Usman Abdul Majidmilitant turned counter insurgent who was also a minister in Mufti Mohammad Saeed’s government “Usman Abdul Majid is a leader of the pro-GOI (government of India) Ikhwan-ul-Musilmeen

dispute if we grant this visa” it said The cable noted that Majid won election easily in the Baramullah district of Kashmirbut added that this was likely because the district has had a minute voter
