INVESTMENT STRATEGIES: INDIA-EFTA TRADE AGREEMENT



Frequently Asked Questions About Investment Lessons from the India-EFTA Trade Deal
 
1. What makes the India-EFTA Trade Agreement unique?
 
Unlike recent FTAs India has signed, the India-EFTA agreement includes detailed investment chapters that focus on investment facilitation rather than protection. This is significant because it contains specific commitments from EFTA countries regarding FDI targets and job creation in India, which is rare in such agreements.
 
2. How does the India-EFTA agreement differ from other FTAs India has signed?
 
The India-EFTA FTA aims to increase foreign direct investment (FDI) to India to $50 billion in the next ten years and facilitate the creation of one million jobs. This contrasts with other FTAs that focus more on trade than investment specifics.
 
3. What are the expected economic impacts of the India-EFTA Trade Agreement on India?
 
The agreement is anticipated to significantly boost FDI flows into India and create numerous job opportunities, aiming to enhance economic growth and development within the country.
 
4. Why is combining trade and investment negotiations beneficial for India?
 
Combining trade and investment provides India with greater leverage during negotiations, allowing for more beneficial trade-offs between concessions in trade and investment terms.
 
5. What future policy changes could enhance the effectiveness of India’s FTAs?
 
India might benefit from a unified approach to negotiating trade and investment as part of comprehensive economic treaties. This approach could include not only facilitation but also the protection of investments, which could help attract more stable and long-term foreign investments.
 
6. How does the India-EFTA Trade Agreement serve as a model for future negotiations?
 
The agreement could serve as a benchmark, especially in how it manages to secure commitments for substantial FDI and job creation. This might influence how India approaches future FTA negotiations with other countries.
