While addressing the participants Mayank Payal said that, “In the recent times, United States (US) & China are going through a Trade Conflict, resulting in increased tariffs and other trade barriers being imposed by US, forcing China to make changes as per U.S interests. Factors such as: growing trade deficit, theft of intellectual property, forced transfer of American technology to China are also contributing in this conflict. However, the US-China Trade conflict is likely to have positive impacts on India, as there is an opportunity for Indian Inc to increase its trade footprint in US market(s), particularly in those categories in which US has imposed tariffs on China”.
Ashwani Kumar, Regional Chairman (NR), FIEO, while addressing the delegates said that ,”The ongoing China–United States economic conflict and is bound to effect a number of growing economies such as India, as both are the world’s two prominent economies. However, the conflict may be seen as an opportunity for India to boost its exports of large number of products to these countries, as both the US and China are imposing heavy import duties on each other's products”.
