Switzerland and Norway could invest 100 billion dollars in India

India is strengthening ties with several European economies through a new free trade agreement and huge investment plans. After sixteen years of negotiations, India is on the verge of concluding a first-ever trade agreement with Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, which form the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). These countries have agreed to invest in India under a free trade agreement in exchange for easier access to the world's most populous country, a market of 1.4 billion people. An unusual feature of this free trade agreement (FTA) is that it comes with investment guarantees, the binding nature of which is yet to be clarified in the final talks.

India is close to concluding an investment agreement with Switzerland and Norway

India is in the process of finalizing a trade agreement that could see a small group of European countries investing up to 100 billion dollars over the next 15 years for easier trade access to the country. The investment in India from EFTA countries is expected to create over 1 million jobs in the country, with the investment mainly targeting existing and new manufacturing projects and largely coming from government-sponsored organizations and private companies. The trade agreement will ensure market access for some agricultural projects and ensure easier transfer of Indian skilled labor to EFTA countries.
