Trade


Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Tuesday the country's trade pacts with the UAE and Australia will chart the way for economic growth. Speaking at the stakeholders' outreach programme on India-UAE CEPA and India-Australia ECTA here, Sitharaman said awareness events about these pacts are happening across the country. She also said the Director General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has been asked to translate the details of the trade pacts in Tamil and share them with the media and stakeholders. Tamil Nadu has a long-time connection with the leather sector, and the industry has achieved modernisation, Sitharaman said, as she went on to add that Tamil Nadu has been a frontrunner in trade for a long time. She urged entrepreneurs to know the features of these agreements and make best use of them. "If you want any support in connection with the agreements, feel free to convey it to us," she added. "The industry should equip itself to cater to the changing tastes and preferences of consumers post Covid. Access the available markets that are part of the agreements," she said. According to Sitharaman, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the UAE some years back, the Royal family promised $75 billion worth investments in India. Sitharaman added that a formal agreement has also been signed, and entrepreneurs should scale up their businesses to get share from the investments.
