Breaking the total down, China’s exports to India stood at $56.31 billion, a reduction of 2.7 percent, while imports from India were $13.35 billion, down 4.1 percent. India’s trade deficit with China reached $42.96 billion. India urgently needs to expand exports to China. It’s become a vital issue in bilateral relations.
