“India has made a serious mistake in not complying with the RCEP Free Trade Agreement. I know that the RCEP is seen primarily as a free trade agreement with China. But today, if you look at the countries with which India is trying to create a friendship alliance that wants to relocate China`s distribution chains, all those nations like Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand are part of the RCEP. If India had remained in the RCEP, it should not have looked for common rules of origin that would have facilitated these supply chain movements. It would have had the same rules on standards, investments and non-tariff barriers,” Palit said. Another example is the HCL Technology Group, which plans to create a $650 million technology center in Vietnam and plans to recruit and train more than 10,000 engineers over the next five years. EVFTA will also make Vietnam a better place for investments that migrate from China because of the china-U.S. trade war, Dhar said. EFTA  has bilateral agreements with the following countries and blocs – including dependent territories – and the following blocs: given Vietnam`s strong economic growth in recent years, a revision of the India-ASEAN free trade agreement is needed to promote continued trade in promising emerging sectors between the two countries. As the standard Charter report points out, there is significant room for greater trade between India and Vietnam if both governments take a proactive approach to trade and investment and exploit that potential. Switzerland (which has a customs union with Liechtenstein, which is sometimes included in agreements) has bilateral agreements with the following countries and blocs: Where is India, where trade policies discuss plans to woo companies that withdraw from China. According to Palit, India`s global trade interests would have been largely protected if the country had not left the RCEP mega-agreement, which, in its original form, had 16 nations, including India. “In other words, India would have been part of a larger family and, within this larger family, it could have asked for a niche for a smaller family,” he added.
“For shoes for which Vietnam exports $7.5 billion in goods compared to $1.6 billion in India, the benefit will be increased as soon as the EU reduces tariffs from 8% to zero for Vietnam. Similarly, Vietnam`s $1.5 billion share of furniture, where India entered the EU with imports of more than $900 million, is expected to multiply if import duties of 6% are removed, Sahai said. Vietnam`s manufacturing industry has quickly become a highly efficient site for importing electronics and telecommunications manufacturers, who are moving from China due to rising costs and a trade war between the United States and China. The country has strengthened investor confidence by rapidly and effectively limiting the COVID 19 pandemic. Vietnam is becoming a top choice for large companies looking to create their new production centres and diversify their supply chains.
