India-Australia CECA - An Crucial Step Towards Transformation of Indian Agriculture

In order to survive in the competition created by the Australian food sector in the level playing ground initiated by CECA, the existing Indian agricultural value-chain needs to be reformed.

The signing of the Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement (ECTA) by Australia and India on 2 April 2022 is another example of India’s recent enthusiasm for accessing free trade agreements (FTAs). The interim agreement appears to be a guarantor of the Australia-India Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA), which the two nations began negotiating in May 2011.
