In a move aimed at greater inroads for Indian professionals, the government is negotiating human resource mobility partnership agreements with the Netherlands, France, Australia and the European Union. The scope of the country's labor partnership agreement is also being expanded to cover not only skilled workers but academics and professionals.
India has also signed the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement with Japan which is expected to give greater access for Indian accountants, research and development service providers, tourist guides, market researchers and management consulting firms to the Japanese market.
