Top officials of India and the European Union (EU) have met on February 22 in Brussels to review the stalled negotiations for the proposed free trade agreement.

On January 18 also, chief negotiators of both the regions took stock of the outstanding issues, including duty cut on automobiles and movement of professionals.
