India is close to finalising a first-of-its-kind trade deal

This first-of-its-kind trade deal that could see a small group of European nations invest as much as $100 billion (CHF87 billion) over 15 years in exchange for easier trade access to the world’s most populous nation, according to people with knowledge of the matter. The European Free Trade Association (EFTA), which comprises Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, made a commitment to invest in India as part of a trade pact that’s in the final stages of negotiations, the people said, asking not to be identified as the talks are still ongoing. The contours of the deal have been agreed and deliberations currently centre on the final investment amount, which could be as much as $100 billion over 15 years, some of the people said. While India wants the commitment to be legally binding, one of the European officials said the amount will likely be framed as a goal, with no legal means to claim it included in the language of the agreement. If finalised, it would mark the first time an investment commitment of this nature is secured by India as part of a free trade agreement. As mentioned by Ritesh Jain, India is the biggest beneficiary of Ukraine/Russia war. A non aligned country with good relationship with everybody , young population is attracting investment commitment from across the world.
