Deeply rooted on the ground and strongly networked with
governments and inter-governmental organizations, CUTS
International, a 35-year-old independent policy research
organization, proposes to address bilateral trade and economic
matters of strategic importance to India and the US through its
own Center in Washington DC (CUTS-WDC).
The opening of such a Center in Washington DC (2018), in addition to the ones in Geneva, Hanoi, Accra, Nairobi, Lusaka and India by CUTS International will be the first by an Indian not for profit organization deeply engaged in impacting social and economic change in India and the Global South.
The organization has consistently followed a Centrist approach with demonstrated capacity in promoting consumer welfare in an innovative, development friendly and transparent manner. The Center will actively engage with all stakeholders in the Indo-Pacific region, countries of the rekindled quadrilateral, international trade bodies and institutions globally. Washington DC and Geneva are both central to trade policy negotiations and the Center will position itself for discussions on economic issues which impact the partner countries.
“CUTS has developed from a modest NGO to a pre-eminent position,
dealing with issues relating to the world trading system and is
now on the frontline of research and advocacy on global trade
