Xi Jinping commits to open more doors for India
Chinese President Xi Jinping has promised to further simplify regulations for import of certain goods from India to address the trade imbalance between the two countries. He said this during his meeting with Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on the sidelines of the SCO Summit in Bishkek, according to Mr Vijay Gokhale, India’s Foreign Secretary. China has simplified regulations for some products like sugar and non-basmati rice. Further, Shri Modi invited Xi for an informal meeting in India this year, which the latter has accepted. Moreover the two leaders have asked their foreign secretaries to organise 70 Indo-China events next year (35 each side), which is the 70th year of establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
