Free Trade Agreements and GST - Engines of Growth

The St. Regis Hotel Mumbai Imperial Hall 462, Senapati Bapat Marg, Lower Parel Mumbai 400013

06 December 2022 | 09:00 AM - 02:00 PM

GST helped remove internal barriers to trade, unifying the indirect taxes. By removing the cascading effect of taxes, GST brought down manufacturing costs. India now intends to remove barriers to cross-border trade and investments. Having already signed Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with UAE and Australia, and edging closer to inking deals with UK, the EU and Canada, among others, India is poised to boost its position in the global economy as a frontrunner. The world is India’s market.

It is time to reap the benefits of efficient manufacturing by leveraging the gains under FTAs and GST law. Utilising them strategically would enable importing duty-free inputs from India’s FTA partners and exporting finished goods from India.  Supply chain management along with responsible and sustainable manufacturing are key to making India’s exports competitive and attractive in the global market.

Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan Attorneys (L&S) is conducting a series of seminars to demystify the complex world of FTAs and explain the benefits that are available to different industries. 


This seminar in Delhi and Mumbai, on 1st & 6th December 2022, respectively, would cover the following agenda:
