The Minister also said that India and Canada have agreed to finalise an Early Harvest Agreement before the end of 2022.

“The GCC, EFTA and Eurasian Economic Union countries are also asking India to conclude FTAs with them. We are confident that these FTAs will give a competitive edge,” the Minister said.

On the National Textile Corporation, the Minister averred “We should allow the private sector…we are examining whether NTC can run professionally and profitably. So far it hasn’t been.”

Regarding any plan to extend waiver of customs duty on cotton imports beyond 30 September, Goyal said that cotton textile prices are easing and “I do not think there is a need to extend it beyond September, but if required, we may extend it for a month.”
