The wary (and weary) pugilists of the EU-India FTA
you are willfully walking into an impenetrable hedge worse than the one dividing India into two from the North to the Deccan.
I've negotiated such agreements all my professional life and know some hidden and not so hidden brambles: few are visible to the untrained eye. Tears await.
Spread a good dollop of India's argumentative balm (Amartya SEN) and the scratches will pester and fester forever. The EU is not much better in this respect, and geopolitics is the latest hot chilly sauce being added.
