Justin Trudeau arrived in India on February 17 for a week-long visit that will include a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 23.
The Indian newspaper Business Standard reports, "Currently India and Canada are engaged in the negotiation of the proposed Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPPA) for facilitating investments and the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) or the proposed free trade pact."
That article notes, "Talks on FIPPA had earlier been stalled by New Delhi's decision to conduct negotiations for all investment pacts under the framework of the model Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) issued by the government in 2015."
Negotiations on a Canada-India FIPPA were launched in September 2004 (under Liberal prime minister Paul Martin) and concluded in 2007 (under the Harper government), but the deal was never signed. Similarly talks on a Canada-India CEPA were launched in November 2010 (by the Harper government), but never concluded.
