The UK must accept more levels of Indian immigrants for signing the free trade deal, said Yashvardhan Kumar Sinha India’s High Commissioner to the UK. He said that comfortable migration of professionals and people was necessary for any trade deal in the future. It will ensure that the deal is beneficial mutually, added Mr. Sinha.
YK Sinha was addressing the business leaders from Indian in London. He said that India is very confident regarding a thriving partnership with the UK. This could be achieved after the UK’s exit from the EU, said the High Commissioner. He also cautioned that a free trade deal post- Brexit would not be easy. It might be 2030 by the time a trade agreement is completed, added Mr. Sinha, as quoted by the Express Co UK.
All aspects of a relationship must be examined for it to emerge victoriously, explained YK Sinha. It cannot be a one-sided affair and has to be beneficial mutually. The issue of free movement of Indian immigrants, especially professionals is a huge concern, added the senior diplomat.
Yashvardhan Kumar Sinha said that India is also keen to enhance the benefits of being a Commonwealth nation. This currently includes common democratic principles, rule of law, and common language. Free movement of people must now be added to this, said the High Commissioner.
Mr. Sinha said that he is not referring to unrestricted travel or unfettered access. But it is being referred to the movement of Engineers, Technicians, Doctors, and Professionals added the diplomat. Both the nations will benefit from the increased movement of Indian immigrants. It has to be a two-sided affair and not a one way, explained YK Sinha.
