Free Trade Agreement Between India and the UK

The conversation between leaders of the two countries commenced when countries were yet to finalise the trade deal.

In January, India and Britain began their negotiations on a Free Trade Agreement(FTA). The deadline for this discussion was kept on Diwali. However, due to a lack of consensus on the Agreement, the deadline got missed. Sunak supports the Trade Deal Sunak, who had earlier served as the Chancellor to the Exchequer, had positively reacted to this deal between the two countries. He expressed his support for the FTA as he saw vast opportunities for both countries in the fintech and insurance sectors.

The 42-year-old Sunak becomes the youngest British prime minister in the 210 years of Britain's history and also the first PM of colour to hold the highest office in the UK. The two leaders will meet next at the G20 Summit scheduled to be held in Bali, Indonesia next month.
