EU-India begin talks on FTA

29 January, 2023

There is a broad, ambitious and comprehensive Free Trade Agreement discussion with India and the European Union, said EU Ambassador to India, Ugo Astuto.

“The discussions taking place have been constructive, but we should not hide that it is a very complex negotiation. It’s a broad, ambitious, and comprehensive Free Trade Agreement and obviously, it’s a complex endeavour but we are determined to pursue its objective, as we believe it would be beneficial to both sides,” he told ANI.

Talking about India’s G20 Presidency at a time when there is global turmoil due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the envoy called India an ‘influential voice’ and said that India in its G20 Presidency has presented a very ambitious agenda of a number of items of great interest to all participants and it will indeed manage to drive the group towards fruitful discussions.
