India, Russia to increase bilateral trade through FTA

International north-south corridor to be implemented

by Natasha Nadkar

India and Russia have agreed to increase bilateral trade through a proposed free trade agreement (FTA). An international north-south transport corridor will be implemented for increasing bilateral trade. The corridor will reduce time and cost of transportation of goods between both countries, as per Indian commerce & industry minister Nirmala Sitharaman. She further added that an Indian delegation will discuss the revised investment treaty between the two countries during their visit in Moscow in April 2017. Foreign direct investment from Russia is estimated at USD 1.2 billion while Indian investment in Russia is around USD 4.9 billion.
