Negotiations are ongoing for a free trade agreement that could boost bilateral trade between the UK and India by £28bn a year by 2035.

This would be a landmark deal for both countries, marking a key milestone for the UK as a newly independent trading nation following Brexit. India is set to become the world’s third biggest economy by 2050 and the country is looking to deepen trade ties with both the UK and EU through trade deals.

In this one-hour Making the most of UK-India trade opportunities webinar recording, trade policy and customs experts at IOE&IT and the Indian Institute for Foreign Trade (IIFT) explore the opportunities that a deal could create, challenges for trade between the countries and advice for British and Indian businesses on how they can gain the skills needed to trade successfully.

The webinar covers:

  • Possible benefits a UK-India trade deal could secure for businesses
  • How rules of origin and preferential tariffs usually work in free trade agreements
  • General challenges for trade between the UK and India
  • Skills and expertise needed to trade successfully between the UK and India
