India’s trade of apparel and textile products with China is following the trend of overall trade with the neighbouring country. India’s trade deficit with China continues to widen in current fiscal 2022-23, similar to 2021-22. India’s imports from China are increasing but exports are quite lower and declining which is causing higher trade deficit. In the financial year 2021-22, India’s trade deficit with China was recorded at $72.9 bn, up nearly $29 bn from FY21’s figure of $44 bn, according to data from the Ministry of Commerce.
