Nations re-evaluating their role in globalisation: Prabhu

New Delhi, March 26 - Globalisation is going through a phase where countries are "revisiting and evaluating" their role in it, Union Commerce and Industry Minister Suresh Prabhu said on March 26.

According to Prabhu, who also holds the charge of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, the first phase of globalisation had faced a "lot of opposition", while in the second phase, countries tried to embrace it and participate more.

"I think we have come to the stage where people (countries) are re-examining, revisiting and evaluating what should be the role of the nation in the community," the Minister said during his address at an industry event by the CII.

Emphasising on having more trade among countries, he added that while most countries were revisiting their roles in globalisation, India was trying to engage with traditional and new partners.

"India has to position itself very appropriately and we have decided that we will be a country which will engage with all our traditional friends and also start making new friends," he said. 

Talking about the new trade initiatives of the government, he said: "We have started working on EU-India FTA (Free Trade Agreement). After 2013, when there were 16 rounds (of talks), (but) nothing happened, now we have invited them." 

"With Africa, we have told that we would like to work with you and prepare an FTA in such a way, that it will be in the long-term interest of both Africans and Indians," he said.

Nothing would ever be sustainable unless it is a win-win combination, he added.
