SEIA Supports USTR Solar Trade Case Against India

WASHINGTON, DC - Calling it "justified and necessary," Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), released the following statement today, supporting the U.S. government's decision to move forward with its World Trade Organization (WTO) case against India:


"We strongly support today's decision by U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman to move forward with a WTO case against India's solar local content requirement. Localization barriers are a growing threat to U.S. solar exports and clearly violate WTO rules. Over the past three years, the U.S. government has provided India every opportunity to remove restrictive and unfair marketplace requirements. In the absence of any meaningful effort by India to find common ground, it's now time for the WTO to finally resolve these long-festering issues."
