Re: India-US relations: News and Discussions III

While leaders of UK, Japan, Germany and Chinese leaders make a bee line to the US, the Indian leader is taking his own sweet time meeting a host of other leaders before coming to the US. Probably an indication of how much India is worried about Trump presidency.

Re: Currency Demonetisation and Future course of Indian Economy

Many predicted less than 5% growth. 6.1% is very good. There is 5 lakh crore less currency in circulation than it otherwise would have been. That alone is a good reason for DeMo.

What are the implications if India joins CPEC/OBOR? Will it come with an agreement of free trade between the participants? If we cannot impose tariffs/barriers/anti dumping duty on chinese goods, china will have a free run especially if UPA comes back to power.
