Support is growing within the union government to formally start talks on a trade deal with Taiwan as both democracies see relations with China deteriorate.


New Delhi, 20 October 2020

Taiwan has sought trade talks with India for several years, but union government has been reluctant to move ahead because it would involve a messy fight with China once any pact is registered at the World Trade Organization, according to a senior government official who asked not be named, citing rules for speaking with the media.

Yet, over the past few months, the hawks in India who want to start trade talks are getting the upper hand, the official said. A trade deal with Taiwan would help India's goal of seeking greater investments in technology and electronics, the official said, adding that it's unclear when a final decision would be made on whether to start talks.
