India-EU relations have developed substantially since the adoption of the Joint Political Statement in 1993 alongwith the signing of Cooperation Agreement in 1994.. In the economic sphere, ties have expanded and both have worked closely together to strengthen the multilateral trading system and to pursue a constructive dialogue on trade, investment and economic cooperation.
India and the EU, as the largest democracies in the world, share common values and beliefs that make them natural partners as well as factors of stability in the present world order. We share a common commitment to democracy, pluralism, human rights, the rule of law, to an independent judiciary and media. India and the EU also have much to contribute towards fostering a rule-based international order, be it through the United Nations (UN) or through the World Trade Organization (WTO).
