Building on previous meetings, experts from both sides notably discussed market access for industrial and agricultural goods, and trade in services. Other important topics included technical barriers to trade, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, rules of origin, customs and trade facilitation, trade remedies, competition and dispute settlement.
The parties agreed on a range of follow-up work in preparation for the next round of negotiations, foreseen to take place in November 2010.
The EFTA team was headed by Ambassador Marie-Gabrielle Ineichen-Fleisch from Switzerland, while Mr A. K. Mangotra, Additional Secretary in the Ministry of Commerce, led the Indian delegation.
