The UK Government has identified the “Indo-Pacific tilt” as being one of the core components of its international and export strategies, which includes deepening trade relations with India.

An “Enhanced Trade Partnership” between the UK and India was agreed on 4 May 2021, following a meeting between Boris Johnson and Prime Minister Modi. In addition to declaring the two countries’ “shared intent” to work towards negotiations on a Free Trade Agreement, the Partnership set the ambition to double the value of UK-India trade by 2030, as well as lowering of non-tariff barriers on fruit and medical devices.
