A Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between India and the UK is anticipated to boost economic growth and prosperity by increasing investment flows (both outwards and inward), import and export flow, and productivity through more effective resource allocation and increased exposure to global competition. On 29 July 2022, both countries concluded the fifth round of FTA talks.
