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.
