Availability: In Stock

“[This book] will be of immense interest and use to legal scholars, trade practitioners and policy-makers alike at a time when trade between the two countries is expanding quickly and governments have initiated negotiations leading to a Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement.”

From the Foreword by Peter Sutherland, former President and CEO of the Canada-India Business Council, High Commissioner to India, and Director General International Trade Policy, Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada

Import and Export Law in India-Canada Bilateral Trade: An Overview is a necessary reference if you are involved or interested in the Canada-India trading relationship, and a handy guide and reference manual to key legislation. Practical and procedural aspects are a significant focus of this new publication, especially in the area of customs control and tariff classification. Decisions from applicable tribunals affect a significant number of customs tariffs. Throughout this work, you’ll find coverage of international agreements, conventions and treaties on the subject matter that both countries have signed, as well as jurisprudence that explains, defines, limits, elaborates on or illustrates the application of important statutory provisions.
