INTRODUCTION
The South Asian component of this project has been designed to survey the impact of environmental standards and SPS measures on trade and explore policies that strengthen the capacity of developing countries to respond to such requirements. This chapter on South Asia has been prepared on the basis of the following:
Empirical evidence in selected sectors, gathered by South Asian researchers. The methodology is set out in Annex III.
Papers submitted to a regional seminar, organized jointly with the World Bank1 (New Delhi, 11 to 13 January 2001), as well as interventions and ensuing discussions at the seminar. Participants from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka took part in this seminar.
Interviews with policy makers.
Complementary research under other technical cooperation projects and UNCTAD secretariat studies.
Part of the information was collected through interviews conducted with representatives from approximately twenty fruit and twenty rice-exporting firms in the New Delhi area. The project also organized a brainstorming session jointly with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), in which about forty members of the food processing industry from the Delhi area participated.Five papers on the experiences of the countries were submitted at this seminar. These included the following:
Bangladesh: Mr Sahadad Hussain, Member Director, Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council, 'SPS Measures and Environmental Management in Bangladesh'.
India: Charles Kittu, Deputy Director, Spice Board, India, 'Issues on SPS and Environmental Standards for India – the case of spices', and Mr Basu, Principal Scientist, National Research Centre for Groundnut,
