Exports to China surge 39 per cent but trade deficit widens too 

NEW DELHI: India and China may have been engaged in a verbal duel over border disputes for the past few months, but the country's exports to the neighbouring nation have surged 39 percent during the first half of the current fiscal, amid indications that Beijing is more accommodating in addressing New Delhi's long pending trade concerns. 

Latest data available with the commerce department showed that exports have grown faster than the pace of import expansion with India's largest trading partner, although the trade deficit has widened given the massive shipments of electronics and pharmaceuticals from across the border. 

A large part of the export jump was driven by three sectors: iron ore, cotton yarn & ferro alloys, all raw material and inputs that feed into China's manufacturing chain. 

But the government is looking to ensure that the best quality iron ore does not flow out of the country and only those with lower ferrous content gets loaded for ships that sail to Chinese ports, said sources. Sources said commerce and industry minister Suresh Prabhu has also flagged several issues with the Chinese authorities to push export of Indian goods, many of which face restrictions. 

The government is looking at easier rules for export of agricultural products, including non-basmati rice, identified as an item of significant potential and the issue is being flagged.
