As the Indian economy continues to grow, so does its potential for international trade. One crucial aspect of expanding trade is through the establishment of free trade agreements (FTAs). These agreements help to reduce or eliminate trade barriers such as tariffs, allowing for increased trade between countries.

India has been an active participant in negotiating and signing FTAs. As of 2021, India has signed FTAs with several countries and regions around the world. Here is a list of countries that have a free trade agreement with India:

1. Singapore: The India-Singapore Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA) was signed in 2005 and came into effect in 2006. The agreement covers trade in goods, services, and investment.

2. South Korea: The India-Korea Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) was signed in 2009 and came into effect in 2010. The agreement covers trade in goods, services, and investment.
