New Delhi [India], July 23 (ANI): Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal said on Thursday that nations which trust each other are increasingly coming together to build global supply chains and it is trust and transparency which determine the sustainability of global supply chains.
Addressing the 10th BRICS Trade Ministers virtual meeting today, Goyal said countries must demonstrate their compliance with global rules of trade to remain a part of global trade flow.
He said for trade to play its part in the recovery process, all the partners must be trustworthy and transparent.

"For trade to play its part in the recovery process, all the partners must be trustworthy and transparent. It is trust and transparency which determine the sustainability of global supply chains and nations must demonstrate their compliance with global rules of trade to remain a part of global trade flow," he said.
"Increasingly nations which trust each other are coming together to build global supply chains with corresponding investments in manufacturing and services," he added.
The minister said he cannot overemphasise the need for all nations to enhance transparency in their trade and build trust to prevent losing their role as a preeminent trade partner.
