Market Ready India: ECTA deep dive and market entry

About This Webinar

Australia and India signed an Australia-India Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement on 2 April, which is expected to generate opportunities for Australian exporters. In response to recent interest we’ve received from wine businesses, Wine Australia is partnering with the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) to host a three-part series of one-hour online seminars for Australian wine producers and exporters.

With a spotlight on Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, the weekly seminars are designed to provide Australian wine exporters with a comprehensive understanding of opportunities and challenges to help determine whether India is a viable export market for their business.

The second seminar will focus on an ECTA deep dive and market entry considerations, including:
• the Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement and implications for exporters – Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
• the regulatory environment, labelling requirements and import duties – Wine Australia
• logistics and storage considerations; and
• importer/ trade insights
