Press conference by Geert BOURGEOIS (ECR, BE) on EU-India trade and investment relations


Restarting trade and investment talks between EU and India are welcome but EU norms need to be protected in the final deal, says the adopted draft report. The draft, adopted by 31 votes, with two votes against and four abstentions, sets out what the Committee on International Trade expects from the relaunch of trade talks with India. The committee welcomes the expected restart of negotiations between EU and India on a trade agreement, a stand-alone investment protection agreement and an agreement on geographical indications, it states.
