Building on the work done during previous negotiating rounds and intersessional experts meetings, the Parties pursued their talks on key aspects of a future comprehensive trade pact.
A special focus was laid on market access for Industrial and Agricultural Goods, along with Trade in Services. Other important topics covered during the round included Technical Barriers to Trade, Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures, Rules of Origin, Trade Facilitation, Trade Remedies and Competition. Detailed follow-ups were agreed in preparation of the next round of negotiations.
The EFTA team was headed by Ambassador Marie-Gabrielle Ineichen-Fleisch from Switzerland, while Shri P.K. Chaudhery, Additional Secretary of the Department of Commerce, led the Indian delegation.
