Sub: India-UK trade agreement: Inputs from stakeholders 

We are pleased to inform that the Government of India is in the initial stage in negotiation of a comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the UK.

For negotiating an effective FTA with UK, respective departments have been in discussion with the industry stakeholders for inputs, suggestions, etc.

In this regard, some important inputs which are essential for the negotiations, are sought by the Government from the stakeholders in an open - ended Questionnaire attached herewith.

The duly filled in Questionnaire (in word format only) will have to be sent by email at, and should reach the Council on or before Monday 12 July 2021.

All the Member-exporters who are exporting to UK and also interested in the UK market are requested to respond to the Questionnaire positively.  

This may be treated as urgent.  

Thank you.
