This book provides a comprehensive assessment of how trade complementarities and agreements help facilitate trade in services between two of the largest economic blocs in the world - India and the European Union

A first of its kind, it addresses policy initiatives on services trade between two economies that are actively engaged in trade agreements. It establishes that the Broad Based Trade and Investment Agreement (BTIA), if signed, will be India’s first agreement with a major advanced regional bloc and a major trading partner, and the EU’s first agreement with a large emerging market. It is, therefore, likely to have a far-reaching impact on other large trading nations such as the United States and China.

This book will be indispensible to scholars of international trade, international economics, macroeconomics, international relations as well as policymakers, policy analysts and the informed general reader.
