Vadodara: Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal has assured that the Centre will not take any decision under the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) which would adversely affect milk-producers in the country, Amul Managing Director RS Sodhi said on Friday.

Sodhi told he had a discussion with Goyal on RCEP on Wednesday.

"Goyal has assured that no decision will be taken by the Centre that will adversely affect the milk-producers in the country. The decision was conveyed to hundreds of milk producers who assembled in Anand on Thursday to mark the 74th Foundation Day of Kaira District Cooperative Milk Producers Union Limited (better known as AMUL)," he said.

He said farmers were keen to understand implications of RECP on the milk sector in the country.

The meeting on Thursday was also addressed by Amul vice chairman Rajendrasinh Parmar.
