Despite H1B visa issues, Donald Trump will look to enhance bilateral ties with India

Despite H1B visa issues, Donald Trump will look to enhance bilateral ties with IndiaA bilateral trade deal might be offered to India by the Donald Trump Administration and this will be a win-win situation for the two countries.

According to the sources, Trump’s administration is interested in a bilateral trade deal with India that could be a "win-win situation" for the two countries but the offer of first such trade deal can go to the United Kingdom. After that, the Trump Administration is expected to engage India on a similar bilateral trade deal offer.

This development surfaced hours before Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.

"I think the President's message on trade has been fairly clear. He is going to fight for American workers and American manufacturing. And that's going to be the number one thing that guides him going forward," incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters. He (Trump) has talked about bilateral deals, but he's going to make sure that every deal he cuts, just like he did in business puts American workers and American manufacturing, American services, America first.”

India did not figure on his remarks on trade related question.


"So whether it's China or any other country, that's going to be the priority. But with respect to China alone, it's a huge market place for American workers and small businesses. You look at the commitment that Ali Baba made the other day when they met with him, talking about increasing access to small businesses," Spicer said.
