The potential signing of a free trade agreement between India and the European Union is seen as a positive step towards promoting economic ties between the two regions. The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has emphasized the benefits of such an agreement, which could serve as a catalyst for enhancing the India-EU relationship.
Significance of the India-EU FTA:
If the free trade agreement is signed, it could lead to increased trade between India and the EU, as well as new investment opportunities. The CII’s Vice President and the Chairman and Managing Director of ITC Ltd, Sanjiv Puri, has stated that this agreement could further strengthen the India-Italy relationship.
It is important to note that negotiations for a free trade agreement between India and the EU have been ongoing for several years, with both sides seeking to address various issues related to market access and intellectual property rights. The potential benefits of such an agreement are significant, and it remains to be seen whether the negotiations will ultimately result in a mutually beneficial deal.
