Dear Ambassador,

As a result of the consultations between our two Governments, I am writing to confirm that the following agreement has been reached concerning the restrictions imposed by India on textile and industrial products notified to the WTO in Annex I, Part B of WT/BOP/N/24 dated 22 May 1997.

The Government of India will remove all import restrictions maintained for BOP purposes and notified to the WTO in Annex I, Part B of WT/BOP/N/24 dated 22 May 1997 not later than 31 March 2003. These restrictions shall be eliminated in three phases, the first phase covering the period 1 April 1997-31 March 2000, the second phase covering the period 1 April 2000-31 March 2002 and the third phase covering the period 1 April 2002-31 March 2003.

The Government of India will remove the restrictions maintained on the import of the textile products listed in Annex 1 to this letter according to the time schedule specified therein.

The Government of India will remove the restrictions maintained on the import of the industrial products listed in Annex 2 to this letter according to the time schedule specified therein.

In case import licensing is required after the date of elimination of a restriction on any product enumerated in Annexes 1 and 2 to this letter, the importation of such product will be subject only to the requirement of a single automatic licence within the meaning of Article 2.1 of the WTO Agreement on Import Licensing Procedures.

Upon elimination of a restriction on any product enumerated in Annexes 1 and 2 to this letter, such product will be transferred, with effect on the date of this elimination, from the NAL (Non-Automatic Licence) or SIL (Special Import Licence) list to the OGL (Open General Licence) list.

With respect to the temporary admission in India of Swiss watch samples accompanied by ATA Carnets the Government of India will abide by its obligations under Article III and XVIII:10 of GATT 1994 and the Custom Convention on the ATA Carnet for Temporary Admission of Goods 1961.

The Government of Switzerland takes note that the Government of India intends, upon reaching bilateral solutions with the trading partners which have requested consultations regarding the same matter under Article 4 of the Dispute Settlement Understanding and Article XXII of GATT 1994 to seek multilateral accommodation for its revised phase-out schedule. The Government of Switzerland will cooperate with the Government of India in this matter.

The Government of Switzerland and the Government of India will notify the Dispute Settlement Body of the WTO that they have reached a mutually satisfactory solution based on the fulfilment of the undertakings set out in this Agreement with regard to the matter raised by the Government of Switzerland in WT/DS94/1 dated 23 July 1997. Provided that this Agreement is fully implemented, the Government of Switzerland will not resort to dispute settlement under the WTO with regard to matters falling within the scope of the present Agreement.

This letter and your letter in reply is without prejudice to the rights or obligations of either Member under the Agreement Establishing the World Trade Organization.

Regards,

Yours sincerely,

(S. Naryanan)
