India plans to export 2 million of raw sugar to China next year onwards.

India is the largest producer of sugar in the world with 32 million tonnes production in 2018. India is in a position to become a regular and dependable exporter of high quality sugar in significant volumes to China.

“It is a move to reduce the $60 billion trade deficit that China has with India,” it said.

India’s export to China in 2017-18 amounted to $33 billion while imports from China stood at $76.2 billion.
