India is an important trading partner. Ministers and officials in the Department for International Trade are working closely with their Indian counterparts and have discussed all aspects of our trade relationship.

As part of my Rt hon Friend the Secretary of State for International Trade’s visit to India in November 2016, we announced a joint trade review with India. This analytical project is evaluating the range of ways we can strengthen the UK-India trade relationship and remove barriers, both at present and as we leave the EU.
