U.S. International Trade Commission to hear cases about bias against U.S. companies in India

By Phillip Yu

The U.S. International Trade Commission will soon begin public hearings to examine allegations that Indian policies discriminate against U.S. trade and investments. The hearings are part of an ongoing investigation.

The list of speakers for the hearings includes the Global Intellectual Property Centre, the U.S. Chambers of Commerce, the U.S. India Business Council, and the Confederation of Indian Industry.  

A portion of the conflict centers on India’s allegedly deteriorating protection of intellectual property rights. U.S. parties have alleged that India has not taken action to enforce copyrights and applied patent law in a discriminatory manner, particularly towards U.S. pharmaceutical companies.
