Dear Members,



It is to inform that the 2nd meeting of the Joint Administrative Committee (JAC) established under the India-Chile PTA is scheduled to be held during the month of April, 2019. During the meeting there will be review of the India-Chile Expanded PTA,  which was expanded on 16th May, 2017.  Discussions will also be held on issues relating to Trade in Goods, SPS/TBT, Customs, Rules of Origin etc under the existing PTA and further expansion of the PTA for inclusion of more tariff lines/ increasing MOP.  


The agreement on India-Chile PTA and also the Expanded PTA including its Annexes and Indian & Chilean Schedule indicating tariff concessions are available on the Department of Commerce website at following links:
