Trade Minister Piyush Goyal says India seeking trade deals with EU and UK

India has begun trade talks with the EU and is open to dialogue with the United Kingdom for a post-Brexit free trade agreement, trade minister Piyush Goyal said on Saturday.

The minister said that Asia’s third largest economy is open to engage with the UK for a preferential trade agreement with the ultimate goal of a free trade agreement between the countries.

He said that he is also in dialogue with the EU’s trade commissioner for a deal that could start with a preferential trade agreement. He added that the ultimate goal here too would be to have a free trade agreement.

India currently has no trade deal with the EU, previous trade talks between the two regions having stalled in 2013.
