Trump ends trade perks for India

No comments

Donald Trump intends to end preferential trade treatment for India that allows $5.6 billion of duty-free exports to the US. In a notification to the US Congress, Trump said New Delhi hadn’t assured the US of “equitable and reasonable access” to the Indian market. But India doesn’t plan to impose retaliatory tariffs on US goods – commerce secretary Anup Wadhawan said Trump’s move would have limited impact. The US ran a $27.3 billion trade deficit with India in 2017, and the two sides have been involved in a trade spat after America hiked tariffs on Indian steel and aluminum last year. Here's what people are saying.
