Q. The term “e-transmission Moratorium”, sometimes seen in news is related to which of the following?





Answer: A

Explanation: About the e-transmission Moratorium

WTO members have agreed not to impose customs duty on electronic transmission since 1998 and the moratorium has been periodically extended at the successive Ministerial Conferences. The moratorium is on digitizable products like photographic films, cinematographic films, printed matter, music, media, software and video games. Many WTO members are seeking a temporary extension of the moratorium till the 13th ministerial conference. India and other countries like South Africa have repeatedly asked the WTO to revisit the issue and have highlighted the adverse impact of the moratorium on developing countries.
