EU starts WTO case against India over ICT import duties

Wednesday 3 April 2019 | 12:58 CET | News
The European Union has filed a complaint at the World Trade Organisation against India over import duties imposed on ICT products.

This is a "clear breach by India of WTO rules", according to the EU.
