India reiterated the belief that the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework will deepen economic engagement and promote inclusive development through enhancement in trade and investment in the region, according to the statement released by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

An Inter-Ministerial delegation from India led by the Department of Commerce participated in the IPEF negotiating round in Bali, Indonesia from March 13-19, 2023.

According to the statement, "During the Bali Round, discussions covered all four pillars of the IPEF: Trade (Pillar I); Supply Chains (Pillar II); Clean Economy (Pillar III); and Fair Economy (Taxation & Anticorruption) - (Pillar IV). India participated in the discussions related to Pillars II to IV."

"Building on the discussions that took place during the previous rounds: The first IPEF Round was held in Brisbane, Australia, on December 10-15, 2022, and the Special negotiating round was held in New Delhi, India from February 8-11, 2023, in Bali, IPEF Partners undertook in-depth text-based discussions and conducted follow-up conversations as they work to advance a shared vision for an open, connected, prosperous and resilient Indo-Pacific region," the statement read.
