Trade Negotiations Between US and India Reach First Steps
Following a two-day meeting in India, the U.S. and India concluded ongoing trade talks, which may begin a bilateral U.S.-India trade deal, according to a recent article in Reuters. The White House has not given any details on what the trade agreement may look like.
Prior to meeting Feb. 24-25, the two nations negotiated for months on terms related to "farm goods, medical devices, digital trade and new tariffs," according to Reuters. In the past, U.S. President Donald Trump has criticized India for its high tariffs. Trump also said he wishes for the U.S. to be treated fairly and be given "reciprocal access to India's market," the Reuters article stated.
"If the deal happens with India it will be at the end of this year and if it doesn't happen then we will do something else," Trump said.
