China pledges $20 billion investment for India

China-IndiaMarking the opening of a new chapter in the economic relations between the two Asian neighbours, China has unveiled an investment package of around $20 billion to bolster infrastructure investment in India – a major step that will help bridge trade deficit and bring the two countries closer in an economic embrace.

The two Asian giants signed 12 agreements, including a pact for the establishment of two Chinese industrial parks in Gujarat and Maharashtra. The pacts were signed after side-ranging talks between India’s Prime Minister and China’s President Xi Jinping in New Delhi September 18.  

Besides economic issues, the two leaders also focused on bolstering trust and agreed to fast-track negotiations for resolving their decades-old boundary dispute.
