By the late 1980s, the perceived value of the medicinal genetic resources of the tropics, especially rainforests, had soared, albeit temporarily. Another form of genetic resources of great interest to U.

This agenda is linked to Indian agricultural and technology export goals. The continuing repercussions of these disputes are evident in the WTO and other multilateral forums, particularly with regard to intellectual property rights to the raw materials and products of biotechnology.
