Gordhan K. Saini and P. Nayak
This chapter discusses the main provisions of the India-Sri Lanka FTA (ISFTA) and analyzes its performance from the trade perspective. The ISFTA is evaluated to gauge its impact on exports and imports of key sectors of both countries, identifying sectors which have gained due to preferential tariff concessions or are likely to gain in the future. Lastly, key service sectors have been identified where significant potential for bilateral cooperation exists and deeper integration under the CEPA framework is suggested.
