Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal on Friday said that the government is all set to give a significant leg-up to ease of doing business by bringing a holistic decriminalisation law in the upcoming winter session of Parliament. 

While speaking at the annual session of the PHD Chamber of Commerce, he said that the government is pursuing Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with developed nations to ensure market access for Indian businesses. 

Goyal said that India-Canada FTA negotiations were ongoing and said that the government was striving to get more market access to developed nations for the Indian products and services through FTAs. 

He added that India has been working with developed nations which are high-income, high-consumption countries to maximise our exports which will in turn lead to more employment generation in the country. 

He urged the industry to abandon its protectionist mindset and said that our negotiations are with nations that have rule-based systems and transparent processes.

Goyal termed Prime Minister’s GatiShakti National Master Plan as an infrastructure marvel.
