Several business communities in both the countries would enjoy a well-designed and smooth atmosphere for trade and economic relations, once the proposed FTA agreement is signed, he added by saying

In this regard, Mr. Anand Sharma, Indian Minister of Commerce and Industry, said that India wants to co-operate with Turkey in industries such as informatics, energy, textile and automotive. A joint working group should be created by two countries, he added.
