The final round of consultations of the India-Korea joint study group (JSG) will be held soon for finalising the report on the formulation of a comprehensive economic partnership agreement (CEPA) between the two countries, Korean foreign affairs and trade minister Ban Ki-Moon has said.

Speaking at a meeting of business leaders organised by Ficci, Mr Moon said that the JSG was looking into the feasibility of CEPA in great detail. I firmly believe that we will eventually reach an agreement which develops much deeper than a simple FTA and one that goes beyond ordinary regional economic integration, he said.
