* Aug 5:
Mango juice: This is the first non-Chinese product that I found in China during my month long trip here. I hadn’t seen any non-Chinese brand in Chinese malls and supermarkets. And then, I found a pack of mango juice bearing an Indian mark. But look closely. It’s not entirely an Indian product. The raw material (mango) may be from India. But overall it looks a China manufactured product.
There is a huge trade deficit in India-China trade. India buys Chinese products but the Chinese are reluctant to buy Indian products. Every year, the deficit has been increasing. We have reached a point where trade deficit is a serious concern in India-China bilateral relations.
