CSE responds to United States OPIC and Exim Bank – on the use of climate finance to kill the Indian solar panel industry

The United States Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) and the US Exim Bank have evaded any response to the central contention of the recent release from Centre for Science and Environment (http://www.cseindia.org/content/us-using-climate-finance-kill-indian-sol... ).
