EXCHANGE OF LETTERS BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENTS OF INDIA AND JORDAN EMBODYING TRADE ARRANGEMENTS
New Delhi, 14 January 1960
New Delhi, the 14th January 1960
Dear Mr. KHILNANI,
During the course of the discussions my Delegation has had with the representatives of the Government of India over the last few days
on matters concerning economic and trade relations between our two countries, we have had an opportunity to review together the possibilities
of promoting the flow of goods from one country to the other. As a result of these discussions, the two Governments have now a clearer
picture of the possibilities of stepping up the trade between the two countries and have reached certain conclusions which I have
the honour to set out in the following paragraphs :
1. The two Governments reaffirm their desire to promote the trade between their respective countries and agree to endeavour, within
the framework of their respective import, export and foreign exchange regulations, to step up the volume of trade between the two
2. The two Governments shall accord to the commerce of each other treatment no less favourable than that accorded to the commerce
of any third country.
3. The provision of para 2 above shall not, however, apply to the grant or continuance of any
(a) advantages accorded by either of the Contracting Parties to contiguous countries;
(b) advantages resulting from any Customs union or free trade area to which either of the Contracting Parties is or may become a party;
(c) preferences or advantages, accorded by India to existing on the date of this agreement or in replacement of such preferences or
advantages that existed prior to the 15 th August, 1947; or
(d) advantages accorded by virtue of a multilateral economic agreement designed to liberalise conditions of international commerce.
4. The two Governments shall take all appropriate measures to promote trade between the two countries in all possible ways, in particular
with regard to items mentioned in Schedules "A' and 'B' attached to this letter;
5. This arrangement shall come into operation from the date of its signature and shall remain in force for a period of one year. It
may be extended for a further period of one year, subject to such modifications as may be agreed upon by mutual consultation.
I shall be glad if you will confirm that the above correctly sets out the understanding reached between ourselves.
