 India is likely to give the United States access to its dairy and poultry markets in exchange for renegotiated terms for its pharmaceutical, textile and industrial exports under a new bilateral trade deal to be signed during President Donald Trump's visit to New Delhi later this month. Top sources told IANS that India is willing to partially open up its traditionally protected sectors – dairy and poultry – on the condition that the U.S. grants India better terms for its pharmaceutical, textile and agro-machinery products. The Indian offer, sources said, is in view of Trump's lament that U.S. has had a trade deficit of $65 billion with India.
