13 January 2022

Commenting on the news, Miles Celic, Chief Executive Officer, TheCityUK, said,

The launch of trade negotiations with India presents a huge opportunity to supercharge trade and investment with one of the world’s most important economic powerhouses.

“As both the UK and Indian economies are driven by exciting and innovative services industries, any trade agreement should reflect this and strive to deliver stronger two-way investment and trade in services. It is also an opportunity to break new ground for cross-border services issues and show real ambition to improve global services trade.

“The industry is committed to supporting the process, including through our work on the India-UK Financial Partnership, which seeks to deliver practical recommendations for deepening linkages between the financial sectors in India and the UK, increasing trade and investment flows, and supporting policy reform.”
