UK firms to have ‘first mover’ advantage in India with FTA: Think tank

A recent analysis by The Resolution Foundation, a UK think-tank, says UK firms are poised to gain from a ‘first mover’ advantage ahead of the US and European Union (EU) in India as a result of a free trade agreement (FTA), which has the potential to overshadow other major UK trade deals. The think tank is examining the economic impact of the UK’s new trade pivot towards the Indo-Pacific region following Brexit.

The economic benefits of a trade deal with India could eventually be even bigger than the now defunct trade deal with the United States, the think tank notes in ‘A presage to India?’, its latest report for ‘The Economy2030 Inquiry’ with the London School of Economics (LSE) funded by the Nuffield Foundation.

“UK firms exporting to India currently face far higher tariffs (19 per cent, on average) than they do to the US (2 per cent), so there is far more scope for trade liberalisation. Securing an FTA with India could also give UK firms a first mover’ competitive advantage over exporting firms in the US and EU, which don’t have preferential access to the Indian economy,” notes the Resolution Foundation.

UK firms are poised to gain from a ‘first mover’ advantage ahead of the US and EU in India due to an FTA, which has the potential to overshadow other major UK trade deals, says a recent analysis by The Resolution Foundation, a UK think-tank, which is examining the economic impact of the UK’s new trade pivot towards the Indo-Pacific region following Brexit.

“India is forecast to become the world’s third largest import market by 2050, while its demand for business, telecommunications and computer services sectors where UK export firms already perform well is expected to treble over the course of the 2020s. UK business services exports currently under-perform in India relative to other Indo-Pacific regions accounting for just 1.8 per cent of imports to India, compared to 3 per cent in China, and 4.2 per cent in Malaysia so the potential for future growth is huge,” a news agency quoted the report as saying.

The United Kingdom and India announced the launch of FTA negotiations earlier this month, with the first round of talks between officials kick-starting virtually last week.

The latest analysis finds that much of the focus around the UK’s pivot towards the Indo-Pacific is around its ambition to become the first European nation to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) an agreement that could cover 8 per cent of current UK trade.

However, as the UK already has free trade agreements (FTAs) with the majority of CPTPP members, with 95 per cent of CPTPP trade already covered by FTAs, a trade agreement with India could have a far ‘bigger impact’, the report says as India is a faster growing economy than the CPTPP bloc.

The think-tank also flags that while there are clear potential benefits of trade liberalisation with India, UK firms will also be exposed to far more uncertainty about competition from Indian exporters.

The Indian economy has already developed a comparative advantage in exporting some business services, and is changing far more rapidly than more advanced economies, with eight sectors emerging as new comparative advantages for India including pharmaceuticals and R&D compared to just one in the US in the past 10 years, the analysis finds.

A successful pivot towards a closer trade relationship with India rests on the idea that the UK can, in services, emulate the German goods success in exporting high value manufacturing to China, while avoiding a new ‘India shock’ similar to the ‘China shock’ that hit US manufacturing in which business services firms in the United Kingdom are undercut by Indian imports with lower labour costs, the think tank cautions.
