Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s visit to India next week is expected to boost ongoing trade pact discussions between the two countries. Bennett’s first trip to India is also set to see greater cooperation in technology spanning space tech, agriculture, and the digital realm.

Bennett’s first visit to India is scheduled for April 2 to mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of relations between Israel and India.

However, there is some uncertainty about an in-person meeting happening next week as Bennett has caught Covid. However, both nations are yet to officially announce any changes to the planned trip.

If it goes through, the trip is expected to give a further fillip to trade talks. While both governments have announced they are negotiating a deal, discussions have not progressed as much as would have been desired. While the lack of a bilateral investment pact had initially held up the talks, negotiations on the trade pact are moving slowly due to market access issues.
