Mr. SM Chaturvedi

International Trade Expert



During past decade gradually Indian Economy has tried to integrate itself with Global Economy. The Liberalization Policy followed has led to Increase in imports. The process has been further augmented by reduction in Tariffs and simplified Foreign Trade Policy. The measures listed above have made local market competitive in respect of import items. Hence every importer tries to minimize the landed cost of import items. One way to make imports cost effective is to effect imports from those countries with which India has Free/Preferential Trade Agreements. Such imports either eliminate the import duty element or reduce it substantially. This leads to reduced landed cost of imports.

At present there are Free Trade Agreements in existence with 16 countries and Preferential Trade Agreements with 107 countries. As per newly announced Foreign Trade Policy of 2015-20 further 34 countries would get added up to this list. Few illustrative countries are Australia, European Union, Members countries of Arab Co-operation Council etc.


The objective of this programme is to acquaint the participants with nuances of operating under Free/Preferential Trade Agreements.
