For the fourth consecutive year, Friends of Europe is delighted to take part in the Trade and Investment Partnership Summit (TIPS) organised by the Europe India Chamber of Commerce (EICC) and to co-organise the session on “The EU, Brexit and India- Adapting to Changing Landscapes”.
Britain’s vote to leave the EU sent shockwaves around the world. The impact on India, with its historically strong relationship with the UK and its growing links with the European Union, will be especially strong. With €72.5bn worth of EU-India trade and €19.4bn of UK-India trade at stake, all three partners need to think carefully about the future of their relations after Brexit.
- How will Brexit affect ongoing negotiations for an EU-India Free Trade Agreement?
- Will Britain’s decision to leave the EU prove to be a boom or a bust for UK-India trade and investment links?
- What challenges and opportunities does Brexit offer to European and Indian businesses?
