India and the US on Tuesday decided to take immediate steps to benefit the farm sectors of both countries. The two sides also discussed plans to “develop an ambitious, shared vision for the future of the trade relationship” at the Indo-US Trade Policy Forum (TPF) that met after four years following directions from US President Joe Biden and PM Narendra Modi at their September 24 meeting.

Co-chaired by Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal and US Trade Representative Katherine Tai, the meeting also decided to work with “like-minded partners” in developing secure supply chains in critical technologies, including cyberspace, semiconductors, AI, 5G and 6G.

There was no breakthrough in long-running trade issues. On the restoration of low-duty access to Rs 40,000 crore worth Indian goods, visas, movement of legal, nursing and scientific personnel, the two sides agreed to continue discussions.

India is poised to export mangoes and pomegranates to the US. India has also put in a request to allow the export of table grapes and aired issues relating to export of Indian water buffalo meat and wild caught shrimp.
