The government may soon import Scotch and Whisky in large quantities from Britain. India is ready to negotiate to import a large quantity of Scotch whiskey from Britain.
Soon Scotch whiskey can come to India from Britain. Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal said on Tuesday that the bilateral Free Trade Agreement is under planning.
He said that India is ready to negotiate to import a large quantity of Scotch whiskey from Britain. The Commerce Minister said that he has proposed to Britain that both countries should start negotiations on Free Trade Agreement (ATF), this is also the need of the hour.
Piyush Goyal also said that I hope the British team will also be excited about this. I am ready to discuss importing large quantities of Scotch whiskey in India.
He said at the India-UK Partnership Summit of industry association CII that it is not that I drink Scotch whiskey but I have heard that there are many fake alcohols in the name of Scotch in India.
I believe that the import of Scotch whiskey directly from Britain will put a ban on fake liquor in the country and people will be able to get real Scotch.
Piyush Goyal said that free trade between India and Britain will open many opportunities for both countries. We have vast business opportunities in areas such as MSME, Agriculture, Dairy, Fisheries, Handicrafts, Textiles, Gems and Jewelery.
We have many sectors and industries in which there are wide opportunities to work for UK companies. He further said that both countries can increase mutual cooperation in those areas where Britain is a net importer and India has comparative advantage.
