Our results indicate that India is simply not competitive enough in terms of products, to the point that even a totally biased free trade agreement cannot significantly reduce India`s deficit. In addition to differences in the performance of the manufacturing industry, we have put forward two other reasons. First, China`s tariffs are already low and a free trade agreement on goods will not significantly boost exports to China. Second, about 45% (2008) of India`s exports to China fall under the category of un agglomerated ores and concentrates (excluding toasted iron pyrites) on which China already has zero tariffs. In other words, about 45% of India`s exports to China will not be affected by a free trade agreement with China. While it may be difficult for India to re-join the RCEP, there are other free trade agreements… Note: Any customs union, every common market, any economic union, the Customs and Monetary Union and the Economic and Monetary Union are also a free trade area. International trade in India and China has grown strongly in recent years. However, Appendix 1 shows how China acts as much as 5 times more than India does. In addition, China has become an export-oriented economy, with a growth rate that exceeds that of its imports. India`s export growth is still lagging behind its import growth rates.
Bilateral trade between China and India amounted to $89.6 billion in 2017/18, with a trade deficit in China of $62.9 billion.  In 2017, the volume of bilateral trade between India and China is $84.5 billion.  This figure excludes bilateral trade between India and Hong Kong, which amounts to an additional $34 billion.  For fully multilateral agreements (not included below), see: List of multilateral free trade agreements. This agreement does not prevent both parties from facilitating the trade in goods not mentioned in Schedules A and B. In the 7th century, China took control of much of the Silk Road and Central Asia. Wang Xuance had sent a diplomatic mission to northern India, involved in a civil war immediately after the death of Emperor Harsha (590-647). After the assassination of 30 members of this mission by the Usurpati plaintiffs, Wang fled and returned with allied Nepalese and Tibetan troops to support the opposition. With his troops, Wang conquered the capital, while his deputy Jiang Shiren (蒋师) took the usurper and sent him prisoner to Emperor Taizong (599-649) in Chang`an.
