Trump's Presser is done. No major stinker. Theek hai.

There was no Modi/Trump joint press-con, it was to ensure that Modi did not have to face the inevitable question on CAA. Modi will talk on it only when it he is ready.

UBCN fly-on-da-wall sources indicate that the visitor got the JKL counter-terror presentation as well as the CAA funding sources presentation - and maybe an Official Protest about the US media noise on the same. After all he is POTUS, so what happens in POTUS is his responsibility. May have been music to his ears as he is thinking of the tweets and talking points for his own followers about how MSM is on terrorists' side. JKL/CAA plainly vindicate his Travel Ban and immigration guidance on the Bissful.

He **MAY*** make some obligatory fa*t on "relijus phreedom" to please his EJ voters but this should be ignored.

Meanwhile from the Russians:

'Big trade deal' between US & India on the way, Trump & Modi say. 25 Feb, 2020 13:00 / Updated 27 minutes ago
...pledged to seal a comprehensive trade accord soon as the two sides are engaged in "positive" talks on the matter.
"Our commerce ministers have had positive talks on trade. Both of us have decided that our teams should give legal shape to these trade talks. We also agreed to open negotiations on a big trade deal," said Modi during a joint statement with Trump outside Hyderabad House in New Delhi on Tuesday.

India feels the sideshow of violence in the capital, even as the United States president Donald Trump wraps up his two-day visit on Tuesday, is nothing but a manufactured tragedy.
Seven people, including a policeman, lost their lives on New Delhi roads, which coincided with the hours of the Trump's visit to India on Monday-Tuesday, eliciting a blunt quip from India's minister-of-state, home affairs, Mr G Kishan Reddy: "This violence is orchestrated with an eye on the US president's visit."
The purported projection is for this to be a clash between protesters and supporters of India's new Citizenship Act, where minorities from three neighboring Islamic states of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh are being fast-tracked, but not Muslims, which the Indian government deems not to be a minority in these three Islamic nations. ... an attempt to 'internationalize' the Citizenship Act among the religious and human right groups in the US Congress, bring in European Union parliament, kick-off debates in World Economic Forum — a la Kashmir — and bring India to its knees. It's a time-tested Western modus operandi which the free world has witnessed in countries as diverse as China (Hong Kong), Ukraine, Middle East, Africa and Latin America.
It's a mechanism which is not lost on India, and certainly not on Trump, whose contempt for 'orchestrated' news is well-known. The violence in the Capital is unlikely to sour the taste in his mouth, or upset Modi beyond a degree. Both are self-made leaders.

India-U.S. Defence Deal: Bernie Sanders Slams Donald Trump For Selling Weapons To India

“Instead of selling $3 billion in weapons to enrich Raytheon, Boeing and Lockheed, the United States should be partnering with India to fight climate change,” Sanders said in a tweet, the first by a Democratic presidential candidate on Trump's India visit. “We can work together to cut air pollution, create good renewable energy jobs, and save our planet.”

President Trump said: We shall be back.

Among very limited invitees to Presidential Dinner,

BSY, Sudhir Choudhary (Zee News), and KCR.

This is out of topic but can't help say: Glad to see BSY, Sudhir there as they are finally getting their due. BSY should be sent on circuit of Mumbai, Bhopal, and Ranchi - things shall fall into place themselves.

For all the "ahead of th ecurve", I haven't seen much discussion on the commodities affected and whats the story?


On GSP, Suraj discussed it and I mentioned it as well. GSP withdrawal has made no difference to Indian exports, but is a bargaining chip. The US views India as developed, so GSP isn’t coming back.

I don’t think Modi govt. wants to get into a trade deal which will be seen as a political favor to Trump. They would rather wait until Nov., lest India being seen as involved in US elections.

Commodities exports to India must abide by India’s religious customs and food purity laws. No animal byproducts in dairy.

There has been talk of an eventual FTA. That would be something of a marvel, but we will have to wait on it. Let’s see what comes of the talks on Tuesday.

In calendar year 2019, India-US trade in goods and services was $160 billion, or about 5% of India’s GDP. There is no reason why it can’t go up to $200 billion by 2025. I think for 2020, India-US trade in goods will hit the $100 billion mark. It would make India the 7th largest trading partner of the US.

Merchandise trade offers an incomplete picture of total Indo-US trade volume. Most people aren't aware, but India's services exports have grown dramatically in recent years. Merchandise exports total about $330 billion a year now. Services exports are an estimated $220 billion for current fiscal year. We are the 6th biggest services exporter in the world. Almost 60% of those services exports have the US as a destination. We run an approx $70 billion services trade surplus, and the services imports likewise are ~60% from the US. In other words, Indo-US services gross trade volume is approx $220 billion, which is more than 2x current merchandise trade volume.

In comparison, Sino-Indian services trade volume is negligible. The Indo-US gross trade volume therefore far exceeds the Sino-Indian one. At $330 billion or so, Indo-US gross trade volume is larger than the GDPs of most countries. Sino-US services trade was approx $80 billion in 2018, i.e. Indo-US services trade is approx 3x that figure. We run a large merchandise trade surplus with the US. We run an even larger services trade surplus with the US. With China, it's the other way around - the US runs a large services trade surplus against them and a corresponding large merchandise trade deficit that's 2x their services trade surplus. In summary the Indo-US trade has been very beneficial to us.

Suraj,

Where are you getting the data of $330 billion/yr for gross India-US trade in goods and services? I’ve only seen $146-160 billion/yr.

The trade in goods is not just merchandise, but trade in steel and machinery. This production is important for India as it involves improving domestic capabilities and large scale employment.

The trade in goods is not merchandise, but trade in steel and machinery. This production is important for India as it involves improving domestic capabilities and large scale employment.

"Merchandise" is a term used in the econ domain to distinguish physically shipped trade from trade in intangibles (software, IP, etc). So as such I'll continue to use that, so please don't overload the term further.

Merchandise trade figures are what are normally quoted in conversation, since services trade is typically not commonly mentioned. Part of this is because merchandise trade can be tallied based on customs figures, whereas services trade is usually seen in the form of accumulation in deposits with the respective national central banks. In India, the DGFT (directorate general of foreign trade, under Commerce Ministry) reports merchandise trade, while services trade figures are reported only by RBI.

As you mentioned, Indo-US merchandise trade is ~$100 billion. India exports $220 billion of services, and imports approx $150 billion. Of these, the US is the partner of 60% of this services trade, and that has been the historical norm. 60% of the sum is ~$220 billion, add another $100B+ in merchandise trade and you have ~$330B I quoted earlier.

I'm aware that my figures don't line up with USTR data, and I'm not sure what the basis of their figures are. I'm assuming it's partly an accounting issue with the US side, since several US MNCs recognize revenues outside of US for tax purposes. It doesn't change the fact that India's services exports are known (RBI gets to know in the form of actual USD receipts), and that ~60% of services trade is conducted with US entities as India identifies them. That it may be recognized differently at their end is most likely a result of corporate taxation and revenue recognition structure since services trade is not a movement of physical items.

It was a celebratory welcome, nothing obsequious. Lack of a trade deal announement - nicely smoothed over by NaMo - shows that it's very much a good relationship of negotiations. Broad parameters no doubt agreed between NaMo and DT. I like the vibes from this vijit.

Suraj,

I would like to see a rapid growth in merchandise trade with the US as it would lead to improved production of metals, drugs, machinery and consumer products. India would be importing complex electro-mechanical merchandise from the US which would help the industries of healthcare, farm production, electronics, aerospace and defense. Additionally, merchandise trade would help considerably toward higher employment rates as it would employ more people in the labor pool.

The trade deal finer points will be negotiated per guidelines agreed to by NaMo and DT.

I think that the big US-India-Oirope-Korea-Japan response to COVID jollies is what the WSJ said in its "shot heard around the world in Beijing":
XXXX is an unreliable supplier.


All eej Fair N Lovely in sex and war... So this is the likely topic of top-level "trade" discussions: how to hinder a repeat of the mindless out of control invasion of the cheen virus. BEST OPPORTUNITY IN 20 YEARS. DT is coming off a so-so outcome in his trade bissing contest with Eleven. Oirope is nearly de-briefed and on the way to Chapter 13. India is no doubt hurting. Japan is stuck in flat economy for the past 15 years. SoKo, well... is not a threat to anyone yet.

My take is that nations might decide that it is halal to ensure that supplies of any item are not "sole-sourced" involuntarily by dumping practices -

1) by reverse price controls: banning sale below a certain price, by a prohibitive "sales tax".
2) permitting under Dubya-Tee-See, subsidies to indigenous entities or other suppliers using the above tax.

US DoD, for instance, will not permit all but one of suppliers for critical components to go bust. Same may be declared halal in several non-military Critical Items. If the above gang up, there is nothing much that cheen can do about it.

" “Today, President Trump and I have taken a decision to raise our partnership to the level of a comprehensive global strategic partnership,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressing the media after bilateral talks in New Delhi on Tuesday.

Modi and Trump agreed to galvanize the Quadrilateral Initiative (Quad), which could become an important element in the Indo-Pacific strategic architecture, bringing together democracies that are wary of a rising China.

“Together, the Prime Minister and I are revitalizing the Quad Initiative with the United States, India, Australia, and Japan. Since I took office, we have held the first Quad ministerial meeting… and expanded cooperation on counterterrorism, cybersecurity, and maritime security to ensure a free and open Indo-Pacific,” stated Trump.

Over the preceding 15 years, New Delhi has avoided alienating China by walking a delicate line on initiatives like the Quad, and on exercises and operations with US military forces in the Indo-Pacific.

Modi abandoned some of that restraint on Tuesday, declaring: “In the last few years, there has been an unprecedented increase in interoperability between our armies.”"


This is fantastic news.
1. Better interoperability
2. BECA in the works.
3. More inter-company JV's and thus, in the long run, more ToT given in a friendly manner.
Better attitude of DoD and State Dept to GoI. More joint ops - like the recently concluded one in which a Chinese ship was caught smuggling goods to SUPARCO.

I would like to see
1. A US MMRCA -- Chini folks don't like it when they see US arms being sold to India.
2. More "strategic" deals - nuclear engine designs for subs.

In case of Kargil - it was one thing to get a few bombs from Israel and France, but in the case of a larger war against China / I would like India to be hooked into the US supply chain.

Given that Trump babu is generally faced with hostile reception, I think he very much liked the show we put up.. He could not stop talking about the "crowd".

When you are constantly been targeted and mocked, meeting friendly people for a change, creates a different type of impression..

He took no nonsense from the reporters... He definitely was in no mood to agonize a country, where he probably feels people like him..

They’re called legacy admissions. Rahul Gandhi and Abhishek Bachhan were admitted Harvard and left promising not to return for poor scholarship and cheating. They were basically rusticated, but not on paper as it looks bad for university.

Over 200 million Muslims call India home. Widespread anti-Muslim mob violence has killed at least 27 and injured many more. Trump responds by saying, "That's up to India." This is a failure of leadership on human rights.

Bernie's (& his paxi campaign chief) is doubling down on his anti-India rhetoric.
