American President’s intent on work-visa programs While NR Narayana Murthy — co-founder of a company that has led the Indian outsourcing drive — may have given US President Donald Trump’s proposed reform of the H-1B regime a thumbs-up the real battle would have to be fought through international lawsuits in Geneva Representational image Reuters Few know that India has already filed an objection (referred to as ‘request for consultation’ which is the first step for trade dispute settlement) with the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in March last year on the current H-1B visa rules If Trump has his way upending work-visa programs than the present Indian concerns may just look finicky India requested for consultations with the US regarding certain American measures for imposing increased fees (objections to “pay higher filing fees and fraud prevention and detection fees under certain specified circumstances”) on certain applicants for L-1 (a non-immigrant visa which allows companies to relocate foreign qualified employees to its US subsidiary or parent company) and H-1B (a non-immigrant visa that allows American employers to temporarily employ foreign workers in speciality occupations) and concerns relating to a numerical commitment for H-1B visas India has said that these measures are in violation of several articles of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) — the set of multilateral rules that govern international trade in services New Delhi requested for consultations with Washington that were held last year India has not yet requested the WTO for establishing a Dispute Settlement Board (DSB) Specifically India has said that some Washington measures on these categories of visa holders violate clauses related to Most-Favoured-Nation (MFN) treatment rules on transparency clauses on domestic regulation measures to increase the participation of developing countries in world trade and commitments to market access and national treatment Consider some of these stipulations under GATS The national treatment clause says that a government shall accord services and service suppliers of other countries “in respect of all measures affecting the supply of services treatment no less favourable than that it accords to its own like services and service suppliers” The MFN treatment clause requires that governments should accord “immediately and unconditionally” treatment “no less favourable” to a country what it accords to other countries for like services and service suppliers In sectors where a country has undertaken market commitments the measures that a country cannot “adopt or maintain” in its sub-regions or its territory extend to limitations on the number of service suppliers whether in the form of numerical quotas monopolies exclusive service suppliers or the requirements of an economic needs test limitations on the total number of service operations or on the total quantity of service output expressed in numerical units in quotas among other such stipulations The clause on movement of Natural Persons Supplying Services in the GATS Annex says that though GATS does not prevent a country from applying measures to regulate the entry of natural persons into or their temporary stay in its territory “provided that such measures are not applied in such a manner as to nullify or impair the benefits accruing to any Member under the terms of a specific commitment” All of these possible violations would be important to cite if India chooses to request WTO to set up a DSB After the panel judgment either of the countries can appeal against the judgment If the highest international trade court even then rules in favour of India then US would be bound to comply However it is unclear how much the Trump administration would feel bound by its WTO commitments including dispute judges’ verdicts against it The growing rhetoric of “unfair” trade agreements used in the current US political discourse might even see Washington pulling out of the WTO India and most other WTO members are in for rough weather in the present climate as far as trade negotiations with the US are concerned In a hypothetical situation of India winning a case against the US regulations on work visas at the highest trade court and US ignoring the verdict against it India can seek WTO’s authorisation to retaliate (to “suspend concessions or other obligations”) against the US — normally such an authorisation is not refused trade experts opine India could then consider imposing punitive tariffs on US imports Another option for retaliation experts say could be the refusal to recognise some of the intellectual property (IP) rights of US right holders But this option of retaliation could involve a much more complicated procedure An across-the-board or discriminatory higher tariffs on the face of it would also be violative of international trade rules particularly the MFN clause though much depends on the nitty-gritties of the American legal changes in trade policy Even Trump’s ‘Buy American Hire American’ would not be so easy to implement if US does choose to abide by its international trade commitments There could be two scenarios: one when the US government procures only from domestic sources and linked with that the government mandates that even a private entity must source from within the US In both these possible realities there is no talk of subsidies yet (which could violate other WTO rules) “In the first situation the US has some flexibility — it is government procurement to mandate procurement from domestic sources provided this is for non-commercial use and for government’s own use Then the US would be within its rights to mandate such a local procurement for government purposes But if the US government mandatorily requires even the private sector to source domestically then that would be violative of WTO rules” Abhijit Das Head of the Centre for WTO Studies at the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade says “Then the second situation where US government gives incentives to procure domestically such an incentive would be violative of WTO subsidies agreement This is commonly called the local content subsidy which is prohibited” he adds By: Reuters | Los Angeles | Updated: February 29 2016 6:11 pm Host Chris Rock speaks at the Oscars (Source: AP) Related News Comedian Chris Rock launched his return stint as Oscar host on Sunday by immediately and unabashedly confronting the racially charged elephant in the room – the furor over the all-white field of performers nominated for Hollywood’s highest honors In an opening monologue peppered with biting no-holds-barred commentary about what he described as “sorority”-style discrimination pervading the film industry Rock set the stage for a night of running gags that repeatedly returned to themes of racial politics In doing so he transformed a glittering awards show long known for self-reverential pomp into a 3 1/2-hour live telecast punctuated by not-so-subtle satire riffing on issues of inclusion and diversity raised by the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite social media campaign and the Black Lives Matter movement Strolling on stage in a white dinner jacket and bow tie Rock casually introduced himself as host of a show “otherwise known as the white People’s Choice awards” adding “You realize if they nominated hosts I wouldn’t get this job” From that moment on it was clear Rock would be pulling no punches Wondering with mock bemusement why blacks’ anger over a lack of Oscar diversity never boiled over in the 1950s or ’60s like it did this year he answered his own question “Because we had real things to protest at the time” “We were too busy being raped and lynched then to care about who won best cinematographer” he went on “When your grandmother’s swinging from a tree it’s really hard to care about best documentary foreign short” COOKIE SALE Rock did not confine his barbs to Hollywood alone He drew one of his biggest laughs joking that the Oscars’ annual “in-memorium” montage tribute to film stars who have died during the past year would instead be devoted to “black people who were shot by the cops on their way to the movies” It was a motif that stretched beyond Rock’s monologue into bits of comedy in between award presentations through the night In one pre-taped parody of a scene from “The Martian” the Oscar-nominated sci-fi drama about an astronaut marooned on the Red Planet Rock was substituted for the stranded star of that film Matt Damon as NASA officials argued whether it was worth the added expense to try to bring him back to Earth In another Rock ventured in a tuxedo to a cinema in the predominantly black Los Angeles suburb of Compton to ask several African-American moviegoers there whether they had seen any of the films nominated this year for best picture None had But all said they had seen and enjoyed the critically acclaimed hip-hop drama “Straight Outta Compton” which failed to earn a place in the best picture contest Striking a balance between withering social satire and a more gentle brand of humor Rock 51 also invited members of his daughters’ Girl Scout troop into the auditorium of the Dolby Theatre at mid-show to sell boxes of cookies to the seated stars They sold over $65000 worth of cookies in the bit reminiscent of 2014 host Ellen DeGeneres’ pizza delivery to the assembled Hollywood elite Rock was named as host of the 88th Oscars in October months before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its roster of nominees lacking a single person of color in any of the acting categories for a second straight year In the ensuing backlash he was widely seen as a presciently inspired choice for diffusing
