The EFTA States and India met for their 20th round of negotiations from 20 to 24 November 2023 in Geneva, Switzerland. 


Negotiations on a broad-based Trade and Investment Agreement between the EFTA States and India were officially launched in January 2008 following consideration of the recommendations of a Joint EFTA-India Study Group. 13 rounds of negotiations were held until autumn 2013 before negotiations were put on hold. After talks were resumed in October 2016, four more rounds have taken place.
