India's decision in the last couple of months has put off the US. New Delhi suddenly imposed tariffs on California walnuts, which has a huge market in India, when 35 consignments were on their way. In the budget too, taxes were levied on medical equipment.
It's likely that agreements will be signed on matters like building capacities and the supply of high-quality medicine to the US. An agreement on intellectual property rights and on a number of items of defense, which includes helicopters, is also likely.
Both countries might also sign an agreement on space.
To note, Trump had mentioned the Chandrayaan-II program in his speech at Ahmedabad.
Officials from both countries will participate in negotiations
Today, New Delhi and Washington could also discuss the foundational agreement, named as Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA). Both global leaders could discuss fast-tracking the pact. Officials from the Ministry of Defense and the Pentagon are expected to expedite the negotiations.
