Trade Agreements Between India And Other Countries

In addition to these agreements, bilateral trade negotiations are underway with Bangladesh, Canada, Colombia, the Gulf Cooperation Council, Iran, Israel, the Economic Union of Eurasia, led by Russia, Uruguay, Venezuela and Mauritius, which would establish themselves in Africa through the African Continental Free Trade Area. Further afield, the government is at various stages of reviewing discussions with Cambodia, China, Costa Rica, Egypt, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, the Philippines, SACU (South African Customs Union) and the United Kingdom. Negotiations for a comprehensive free trade agreement between the EU and India began in 2007 and suspended in 2013, with ambitions between the EU and India lacking. The EU remains committed to working towards an ambitious, comprehensive and balanced free trade agreement with India, which meets the best interests of each side and is a win-win. However, there are two types of free trade agreements: bilateral and multilateral. Every customs union, every trade market, every economic union, every customs and monetary union also has a free trade area. The EU uses all available channels to cooperate with India to ensure fair market access and predictable investment conditions and to promote full compliance by both sides with its multilateral commitments under the World Trade Organization (WTO). The EU-India sub-committee, established as part of the 1994 EU-India Cooperation and Partnership Agreement, and its specialist technical working groups are key instruments in this regard. The Indian government has actively sought bilateral trade agreements with other so-called developing countries, as well as with industrialized countries. During the negotiations leading to the conclusion of the current India-China trade agreement, the two delegations recognized that the problems related to inspections, investigations, navigation, insurance and the movement of businessmen needed to be examined and resolved in a practical manner in order to better achieve the objectives of the agreement and further strengthen trade relations between the two countries.

These issues relate to specific issues rather than substantive issues, so both delegations agreed to postpone consideration of these issues to a later date. It is to be hoped that, in these subsequent discussions, our two governments will be able to find constructive solutions that will help promote and stimulate the flow of trade between our two countries.

At a time when India has negotiated free trade agreements with a number of countries/groups, including the Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), and has decided to begin the review of the India-ASEAN free trade agreement, the state of trade between India and its major free trade partners needs to be examined. Major free trade agreements signed and implemented by India to date include the South Asia Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA), the India-ASEAN Comprehensive Agreement (ECSA), the India-Korea Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) and the Indian and Japanese EPA.
