One of the EU`s main objectives in its trade relations with India is to work towards a strong, transparent, open, non-discriminatory and predictable regulatory and trade environment for European companies that trade with India or invest in India, including the protection of their investments and intellectual property. The aim is to contribute to the development of the untapped potential of two-way trade between the EU and India. 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. India is one of the world`s fastest growing major economies and an important player in global economic governance. India is an important trade and investment partner for the EU. It is an important and dynamic market, with an annual GDP growth rate of around 6% (before Covid-19). The EU continues its cooperation with India to ensure that such an agreement is economically viable, by providing both sides with genuine new market openings in all sectors, including a strong rules-based component and including a full chapter on trade and sustainable development, including to deal with social and environmental consequences. At the same time, the EU is ready to consider entering into negotiations for an autonomous investment protection agreement, which would enhance the legal security of investors on both sides.

At present, India`s trade regime and regulatory environment remain relatively restrictive. Technical barriers to trade (OTC), health and plant health measures (SPS), deviations from international standards and agreements, and discrimination based on India`s legislative or administrative measures affect a wide range of sectors, including goods, services, investment and public procurement.

Access to the content of society newspapers varies according to titles. 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.
