Trade Agreements For India

The EU is India`s largest trading partner with 11.1% of total Indian trade, on a par with the US and China (10.7%). We are confident that free trade agreements with the EU and the US will benefit India and talks will resume,” said Gopal Krishna Agarwal, bharatiya Janata Party`s national spokesperson for economic affairs. “India is not opposed to trade agreements with other countries, although this now seems to be the popular idea, after leaving RCEP, we understand the need to remain integrated globally and regionally,” Agarwal added.

Despite the growth in trade, India`s trade with its neighborlines remained between 1.7% and 3.8% of its world trade. Between 1988 and 1996, the country`s share of trade doubled due to an increase in the volume of trade and the value of trade. This could be attributed to economic liberalization in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the 1990s. [7] South Asian countries must take steps to eliminate para-tariffs and DNTs.

Para-tariffs, which are additional tariffs imposed by states on imports, are not part of SAFTA or other free trade agreements in the region. In addition, DNTBs, such as import barriers, anti-dumping and countervailing measures, audit and certification requirements, export subsidies and government participation, have limited the potential for intra-regional connectivity. [16] Worldwide, the signing of the Customs Agreement on the International Transport of Goods with TIR Carnets (TIR Convention, 1975) is a positive step towards the elimination of certain NTBs and the simplification of procedures. [17] In order to harness South Asia`s trade potential, this model should be replicated at the regional level. . . .
