Recognizing this development and recognizing the economic potential for closer ties, both sides recognized opportunities to deepen trade and investment relations and agreed to negotiate a framework agreement to pave the way for the creation of an ASEAN-India Free Trade Area (FTA).  India had a trade deficit in all major trade agreements, with the exception of the South Asia Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA). In tourism, the number of visitors from ASEAN to India rose to 277,000 in 2006, while the number of visitors arriving from India to ASEAN in 2008 was 1.985 million. At the sixth ASEAN-India Summit in Singapore on 21 November 2007, India proposed to fly one million tourists from ASEAN to India by 2010. At the second meeting of the ASEAN and India Tourism Ministers (ATM-India), held in Bandar Seri Begawan on 25 January 2010 India`s proposal to develop a cooperation agreement between ASEAN and India for tourism was welcomed and the ASEAN and India WORKING Group was invited to continue the study and preparation of the draft agreement. Ministers also supported the creation of the ASEAN Tourism Chapter in Mumbai as an important common platform for ASEAN national tourism organizations (NGOs) to market Southeast Asia to Indian consumers, while fostering mutual awareness between ASEAN member states and India. Over the years, with trade statistics and figures, it is easy to decipher the trade imbalance in favour of ASEAN and India, which has a growing trade deficit with the region, which is severely damaging their current account deficit, which is affecting India overall in terms of fiscal employment. A free trade agreement or free trade agreement is an agreement between two or more countries in which countries agree on certain obligations regarding trade in goods and services as well as the protection of investors and intellectual property rights.
This could help allay India`s fears that it did not benefit from the agreement and that its trade deficit with the 10-person group has widened. The trade gap was $22 billion in the GJ19, compared to $13 billion in the GJ18. A free trade agreement is an agreement between countries to reduce or remove trade barriers. Tariff barriers, such as taxes and non-tariff barriers, such as regulatory laws, are among the barriers to trade. In 1992, India became an ASEAN sectoral dialogue partner and India saw its trade with ASEAN increase relative to its trade with the rest of the world. Between 1993 and 2003, bilateral trade between ASEAN and India increased by 11.2% per year, from $2.9 billion in 1993 to $12.1 billion in 2003.  Much of India`s trade with ASEAN is directed to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, with which India has close economic relations.  I would like to know if I am importing substance to make clothing and whether I have shipped it to South Korea and Japan under the free trade agreement (H.S. Code – 6104 – 6204) there are tariffs that must be paid in Korea and Japan for the use of imported equipment, or can be imported duty-free.
