The local trader’s body, Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has said that it will boycott Chinese goods and lend support to indigenous products.

As per the several reports, India’s state-run telecom companies may stop sourcing equipment from Chinese companies. Today we are looking at the China product list in India and products India Imports and Exports to China.

The trade Deficits

For the period between April 2019 and February 2020, China accounted for 11.8% of India’s total imports. However, India’s total exports to the country were just 3%. It is clear from this deficit that we buy more from China than we sell. This trade deficit with China is also a major contributor to India’s overall trade deficit It is also one of the world’s biggest trade deficits between two nations. Officially, China’s Foreign Direct Investment in India stands at over $2.34 billion. In 2019, Chinese export to India was at $68 billion while imports stood at $16.32 billion.
