Abstract

This chapter undertakes a comprehensive assessment of the potential implications of the European Union-India FTA for India as well for various other low-income developing countries in Asia and Africa. Such as analysis provides important information on, and insights into bilateral trade patterns of developing countries involving the European Union and India. In fact, it helps in identifying the scope of loss of competitiveness for the excluded developing countries and the countries that are already enjoying trade preferences in the European Union. In addition, the analysis will be useful to policymakers in developing countries by providing them with important information, and by identifying a set of measures that can be of help to those countries.
