New Delhi: Swadeshi Jagaran Manch, close to the RSS, announced on Thursday a national demonstration against the Comprehensive Regional Economic Partnership (RCEP), a planned free trade agreement between the ten ASEAN member countries and their six free trade partners. Sony United Kingdom Ltd and its controlled, controlled or controlled parent companies, subsidiaries and/or associated companies (together “SONY”) may at any time and at our sole discretion change the terms and conditions of such a contract by publishing a notice of amendment or a new agreement on Sony`s website. Their continued use of the service after the publication of an amendment notice or new agreement on Sony`s website constitutes a binding acceptance of the amendment. Mahajan said rcEP had cancelled several good initiatives by the NDA government led by Prime Minister Modi. “The deal would have killed Make In India, Digital India, Skill India and various other ways to create jobs,” he said. Anti-RCEP Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the courageous decision not to conclude the Comprehensive Regional Economic Partnership Agreement (RCEP). The organization close to the RSS wants the government to re-examine the “defective” free trade agreements (VPA) and CEPA with Japan, South Korea and other countries. In a congratulatory statement in Delhi, Ashwini Mahajan, national co-organizer of the LSU, praised Trade Minister Piyush Goyal`s efforts to convince ASEAN countries to review the free trade agreement with them. From the beginning, the LSU had asked the government to stay away from the RCEP and had always alerted to the shortcomings. “India already has a trade deficit of more than $105 billion with other member countries negotiating the deal, including $54 billion in China alone. The RCEP would have had a significant impact on the economy.
The agreement had no provisions to fill the trade gap. In fact, the zero tariff rate for most products would have allowed Chinese companies to throw more into our country. This would have wiped out the small and micro-players,” said the LSU. The free trade agreements signed by India over the past decade play an important role in authorizing cheap imports and eroding Indian production. In 2018-19, India had a trade deficit with 11 of the 15 RCEP negotiating countries. Last year, India had a trade deficit of $104 billion, more than half of which was with China,” he said.
