India and US hold talks on increasing Covid vaccine availability, TRIPS waiver



Union industry and commerce minister Piyush Goyal on Friday held a virtual meeting with the United States Trade representative Katherine Tai with regard to increasing the availability of vaccine doses against the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) 'in an inclusive and equitable manner' to fight against the global pandemic, according to a statement issued by the ministry of commerce and industry.

Goyal and Tai also held talks on both India and the United States working together on the Trade-Related aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) waiver with a view to ensure that vaccine doses are affordable to all.

"The proposal of India on waiver of certain TRIPS provisions to increase global vaccine production in order to take on the challenge of vaccinating the poorest of the poor and saving lives was also discussed. Goyal thanked Tai for the US announcing its support for India's proposal," the statement said.
