Amfori and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) will cooperate in the areas of sustainability and open trade. They will jointly support members as they endeavor to improve sustainability in their supply chains. They will also work together to foster a policy environment that increases trade and economic ties between India and the European Union.
The two organisations will establish regular communications mechanism on trade policy questions and develop joint programs and actions to benefit their members. Amfori and CII will develop specific programs to increase collaboration across a broad spectrum of international trade issues.
Under the agreement, small and medium-sized companies will receive specific support by both organisations to unleash new opportunities in the global economy. CII and Amfori will also encourage their respective members to seek membership in, and access to, the services provided by the other association.
The Confederation of Indian Industry works to create and sustain an environment conducive for industry growth, partnering industry and government alike through advisory and consultative processes. Amfori is a leading global business association for open and sustainable trade. It brings together over 2,300 retailers, importers, brands and national associations. The work enables organisations to enhance human prosperity, use natural resources responsibly and drive open trade globally.
