Brexit’s impact on India very limited: Chinese daily

Beijing, July 5 (IANS) The impact of Brexit on India will be “very limited” as New Delhi does not play a key role in global trade, a leading Chinese daily said on Tuesday.

At the same time, following its exit from the European Union, the UK’s role in promoting India-EU relations will no longer exist, said an opinion piece in the Global Times.

“Given the fact that New Delhi is not playing a crucial role in global trade or the international geopolitical system, the influence of Britain leaving the European Union will prove to be very limited,” it said.

The newspaper pointed out that in economy and trade, there would be impact “though not significant ones”.

It said India was among the countries that have huge migration flows to Britain.

Previously, once Indians emigrated to the UK and became British nationals, it was easy for them to further migrate to other European countries because the UK’s EU membership gave its citizens the right of free movement within the bloc.

“However, after Brexit, the EU will be bound to rearrange this policy with the UK, which means Britain will no longer be a doorway for immigrants to Europe, and its attraction for large sources of immigration such as India will be reduced,” the daily said.
