Dossier on Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs)

This Quarterly Dossier does shallow analysis of potential impacts(on the Indian economy) of those preferential trade agreements of which India is not a party. One of the most interesting trends in today’s global trade is the emergence of bilateral and regional trade arrangements, collectively known as preferential trade agreements. The slow pace of multilateral trade negotiations under the aegis of the World Trade Organisation contributed to this development. A large number of preferential trade agreements and related negotiations are underway of which India is not a party but they may potentially affect India’s trading opportunities.
