Asean India Fta Agreement

It went on to say that „subject to the outcome of the scoping exercise,“ the ASEAN-India Joint Committee will be activated for the effective revision of the agreement. Economic ties and prosperity between the two regions will flourish following the recent ASEAN-India Summit in New Delhi on 20-21 December 2012 and the subsequent adoption of the Free Trade Agreement on Services and Investment. Following the virtual meeting of ASEAN and India economic ministers last month, at which the decision to review the goods trade agreement was reiterated, India continued its urgency with a letter to ASEAN Secretary General Lim Jock Hoi. Moreover, the signing of the RCEP cannot put an end to the process – since several countries must ratify the agreement through a parliamentary process. But officials also noted that there was not much room because there were no more complicated negotiations on the text. Trade relations between India and the Philippines began to flourish when a trade agreement was signed on 29 May 1979. In addition, in 1995, following the Philippines` first trade mission to India, a joint working group and a Joint Economic Council were established to assess and identify possible trade pathways and identify new areas of cooperation. In 2008, relations between India and Brunei in the agriculture and defence sectors were strengthened during the visit of the Sultan of Brunei to India. During his visit, five agreements were signed, such as the Bilateral Investment and Protection Agreement (BIPA) and the Memorandum of Understanding on Information and Communications Technology Cooperation. India also signed a free trade agreement on products with Brunei in 2010, which significantly reduced import duties on products ranging from seafood to chemicals and clothing. In return, Brunei also reduced import tariffs on various Indian products.

February 7: The ASEAN-India Free Trade Area (AIFTA) is a free trade area made up of ten member states of the Association of South Asian Nations (ASEAN) and India. The initial framework agreement was signed on 8 October 2003 in Bali, Indonesia, and the final agreement was signed on 13 August 2009. The Free Trade Area came into force on January 1, 2010. In addition, Indonesia and India signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 2005 to establish a Joint Task Force (JSG) to examine the positive aspects of signing a Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (ECSC). The ECSC must be an agreement that includes economic cooperation and trade in goods and services as well as investment, which would lead to a higher level of mutually beneficial economic cooperation between the two countries. The JSG forecasts that this ACA would bring total exports between India and Indonesia to $17.5 billion in 2020, with Indian exports reaching $7.8 billion and Indonesian exports at $9.7 billion. In 2010, India concluded a free trade agreement with Indonesia, which reduced tariffs on imports of products such as seafood, chemicals and clothing. In return, Indonesia reduced tariffs on imports of Indian products.

In 2011, India and Indonesia signed a total of 18 agreements in the mining, infrastructure and manufacturing sectors, totalling $15.1 billion, in addition to a free trade agreement on goods.
