The article reports on the decision of senior Indian and Chinese officials to dismiss calls by the U.S. for textiles and apparel to be given special consideration in the global tariff-reduction talks. The accord brokered by then-U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick and key ministers from other countries helped put the Doha Round of trade talks back on track following their dramatic collapse during the World Trade Organization summit in Cancún, Mexico, in September 2003. He stressed that some of the U.S. remarks on textiles were at variance with its broader policy stance on sectorial talks in the non-agricultural market access segment of the talks.
