    Indian financial journalist finds Forum useful

    I am a journalist working for the Hindu Group's financial daily, Business Line. I have been receiving Forum for almost a decade and it has been quite useful in my professional work.

    From issue 2/2001, I found the interview published in page 22 quite absorbing. I have reproduced the same in my paper with some added comments from our Commerce Ministry officials. The story is prominently published in the 4 October 2001 online edition of Business Line, under the "Macroeconomy" page (go to http://www.blonnet.com/2001/10/04/stories/010432s4.htm).

    Let me know your reaction. I am sure we can have constructive cooperation in highlighting the important publications of ITC.

    Editor's note: ITC welcomed this initiative and encourages journalists to reproduce Forum articles and keep us informed.

    ITC speaks to trade/environment debate

    I have just been reading the ITC Forum on "Greening Your Business" (issue 2/2001) and realized (rather late) that ITC definitely has something to contribute to the trade/environment/forestry discussion. The Timber Committee will be discussing this [in] October, based on presentations by relevant Geneva organizations.

    Editor's note: This contact has resulted in ITC contributing to UNECE's Forest Products Annual Market Review 2001-2002.
