Piyush Goyal at WTO: Union Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal has gone to Geneva to attend the World Trade Organization meeting. During this, he criticized the discriminatory policy being adopted regarding Fish Farming Subsidy. Talking about changing the discriminatory behavior regarding subsidies in fisheries, he said that India cannot compromise on the livelihood of more than 90 lakh fishermen’s families due to these rules.
Goyal said that I see many countries very concerned about their fishermen. But what is the number of fishermen? One country may have 1,500 fishermen, another may have 11,000 fishermen, a third may have 23,000 fishermen, and then another 12,000 fishermen. He said that in this matter we need to have different behavior.
Have developed countries snatched the opportunities of developing countries?
The Union Minister said that I feel that due to the arrangement so far, an equal opportunity to fulfill the aspirations of the fishermen of developing countries and their livelihood has not been provided by the developed countries. About 9 million fishermen and their families in India depend on the assistance of the government. Goyal further said that if any opportunity is not given to the small scale traditional fishermen to expand their capabilities, it will also take away their future opportunities.
How much subsidy did India get from WTO?
The Union Minister further said that the WTO gives India the lowest subsidy for fisheries. The Union Minister further said that fish farming is an inseparable part of mythology, religion and culture in India. He said that India’s participation in the use of fish and aquatic resources has always been exemplary.
