The United States and India have resolved six disputes at the World Trade Organization (WTO).
What Happened? This agreement was reached during a meeting between U.S. President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the U.S. Trade Representative’s office said in a statement.
As part of the resolution, India has agreed to scrap tit-for-tat tariffs on specific U.S. products, including chickpeas, lentils, and other goods.
Modi is currently on a state visit to Washington, where he met the president for a state dinner and discussed several matters.
The visit has already yielded results, with U.S. chipmaker Micron Technology all set to build a billion-dollar semiconductor plant in Gujarat and the US easing visa-renewal rules for some Indian immigrants in the US.
