India, Malaysia begin negotiations on CECA
KUALA LUMPUR: India and Malaysia on Monday began negotiations on opening their markets through an agreement that will not only cover trade in goods and services but also investment. The first meeting of the trade negotiating committee on signing a comprehensive economic cooperation agreement (CECA) started here. The TNC is also the co-chair of the India-Asean Free Trade Agreement negotiations. Malaysia, which is keen on a CECA with India, has taken a tough stand in the India-Asean talks demanding more market access for its palm oil.
