CONSULTATIONS ON POSSIBLE COMPREHENSIVE ECONOMIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT NEGOTIATIONS WITH INDIA

The Government of Canada is seeking the views of Canadians on the scope of a possible comprehensive economic partnership agreement between Canada and India.

This notice is part of the Government of Canada’s domestic consultation process with business, citizen-based organizations and individual Canadians, as well as with provincial and territor-ial governments, to obtain advice and views on priorities, objectives and concerns to help outline the parameters of this initiative.

Background

In June 2007, Canada’s then Minister of International Trade, David Emerson, and India’s Minister of Commerce and Industry, Kamal Nath, asked the CEO Roundtable composed of Indian and Canadian chief executives to provide advice on the possibility of launching bilateral free trade negotiations. India and Canada: A New Era of Cooperation, co-authored by the Canadian Council of Chief Executives and the Confederation of Indian Industry (the CEO Report), was released on September 2, 2008. The CEO Report urges Prime Ministers to endorse the launch of negotiations toward a free trade agreement (FTA) as soon as possible and outlines the objectives that both countries should pursue in an eventual FTA.

Officials received the report in September 2008 and a preliminary government analysis indicates that there is significant potential for enhancing the bilateral commercial relationship. During a visit to New Delhi, India, from January 18 to 20, 2009, Minister of International Trade Stockwell Day and Minister Nath announced that Canada and India have agreed to initiate exploratory discussions towards a comprehensive economic partnership agreement.

The Canada-India commercial relationship is strong and has much potential for greater long-term growth. From Canada’s perspective, two principal factors are driving India’s importance in the global economy and as a priority for Canadian companies. First, India has the potential to become the third-largest global economy by 2050. Its growing middle class, GDP per capita, population and associated infrastructure requirements will drive domestic demand for resources, manufactured goods and services. Second, India has the potential to become a regional hub of significant manufacturing and economic influence. It could be the next major low-cost manufacturing centre (after China), and a key link in evolving global value chains. In tandem with this move to low-cost manufacturing, India also continues to move toward a knowledge-based economy. Its strengths in such sectors as information and communications technologies (ICT) make it a key partner in science and technology (S&T).

Two-way merchandise trade between Canada and India reached a record high of $4.6 billion in 2008. Exports amounted to $2.4 billion and consisted mainly of fertilizers, vegetables (pulses), paper and paperboard, machinery, woodpulp, electrical and electronic equipment, and precious stones and metals. During 2008, Canada also imported $2.2 billion of merchandise from India. Imports from India primarily included organic chemicals, precious stones and metals, knit and woven apparel, machinery, iron and steel products, and electrical and electronic equipment.

The most recent statistics available indicate that service exports to India reached $363 million in 2006. Investment is difficult to quantify, but according to Statistics Canada, 2007 saw a major increase in Indian foreign direct investment (FDI) in Canada to $446 million, compared to $222 million at the end of 2006. With India’s potential for economic growth, there is a similarly considerable upside in the area of FDI.

India has concluded several trade agreements, including with Thailand (2003), Singapore (2005), the South Asian Free Trade Area (2006), and Korea (2008). India also has concluded preferential trade agreements (PTAs) with Mercosur (i.e., Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay), Chile and Afghanistan. India has also launched negotiations with several other partners, including the European Union, Japan, the European Free Trade Association, and Israel.

India and Canada have already concluded a number of bilateral agreements designed to facilitate closer trade. India and Canada signed a science and technology cooperation agreement in 2005; an air services agreement was originally signed in 1982 and extended in 2005; and a foreign investment protection and promotion agreement has been negotiated and we are working with India to move to signature and ratification. In addition, a joint statement was signed in 2007 to create the Canada-India Forum for Environmental Cooperation.

Submissions by interested parties

The Government is embarking on a public consultation process to allow all interested stakeholders an early opportunity to provide comments, input and advice on a possible comprehensive economic partnership agreement with India. It is essential that the Government of Canada be fully aware of the interests and potential sensitivities of Canadians with respect to this initiative. We welcome advice and views on any priorities and objectives, as well as any concerns relating to a possible comprehensive economic partnership agreement with India. In particular, we are seeking views with respect to the following:

  • Opinions on areas of goods export interest, including products that would benefit from the removal of tariffs and other barriers by India. The Government is also seeking views on market access liberalization for Indian products into the Canadian market, including input on the elimination of tariffs on specific products (e.g. tariff phase-outs).
  • Advice and views on trade in services, particularly the identification of sectors/activities of export interest for Canadian service providers, and opinions on domestic regulatory measures that restrict or otherwise affect market access for Canadian service providers.
  • Advice, views and experiences regarding the temporary entry of business persons from Canada into India and into Canada from India (e.g. impediments to entering or working in India on a temporary basis including licensing or certification requirements at the border).
  • Advice, views and experiences regarding measures affecting exports destined for India including non-tariff barriers (such as import licensing), technical barriers to trade (including technical regulations, standards and/or conformity assessment procedures) and sanitary and phytosanitary measures.
  • Views on general rules of origin and on appropriate rules of origin for specific products or sectors.
  • Advice on “trade facilitation” issues (e.g. significant impediments related to import procedures).
  • Advice, views and experiences regarding customs procedures and commercial goods entering and/or leaving India.
  • Advice, views and experiences regarding investment barriers faced by Canadian investors in India, including restrictions imposed on foreign ownership or entry to market, questions of transparency of regulation, performance requirements (i.e. local content requirements, use of local labour and services), and any other impediments/barriers.
  • Advice and views on priority government procurement markets for Canadian suppliers in India, including the government entities or enterprises of interest to Canadian suppliers and the goods, services or construction services that Canadian suppliers are interested in selling to those government organizations.
  • Advice, views and experiences regarding barriers (e.g. availability and transparency of information, domestic preferences) when selling or attempting to sell to governments in India.
  • Views and experiences regarding the protection of intellectual property rights.
  • Advice and views on competition policy matters, including development of possible cooperation mechanisms.
  • Views on ways to reflect the interests and values of Canadians in the area of sustainable development, environmental protection and conservation.
  • Views on ways to reflect the interests and values of Canadians in the areas of workers’ rights, human rights, transparency in business and commercial practices and other social concerns, as they relate to India.
  • Advice and views on ways to enhance the bilateral economic relationship, such as cooperation on science and technology.
  • Advice and experiences regarding trade remedies (i.e. anti-dumping and countervailing measures) taken on trade between India and Canada.
  • Views on other related issues not mentioned above.

All interested parties are invited to submit their views by April 6, 2009. Please be advised that any information received as a result of this consultation will be considered public information, unless the parties explicitly request otherwise. Submissions should include
