Commerce Ministry calls meeting of stakeholders on increasing exports to China

The Commerce Ministry has called a meeting of stakeholders and Government Departments to discuss ways to increase exports to China, an official said recently.  

Officials from the Agriculture Ministry, APEDA and representatives from Export Promotion Councils would participate in the meeting.  

Growth in exports to China is beneficial for India as it has huge trade deficit with the neighbouring Country.  

Trade deficit with China increased to USD 63.12 billion in 2017-18 from USD 51.11 billion in 2016-17.  

India is taking several steps to promote shipments to China. Recently, it has managed to export agricultural goods such as non-basmati rice to China.  India is seeking greater market access for various agricultural products, animal feeds, oil seeds, milk and milk products, pharmaceuticals in light of the potential of these products/services in the Chinese market.
