Washington DC, July 11: The officials of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) are scheduled on Thursday to arrive in New Delhi to hold meetings with the Indian trade representatives on several issues related to tariffs.

According to ANI news reports, a team of US delegation will be headed by Christopher Wilson, the assistant USTR for India. Deputy Assistant USTR Brendan Lynch is also expected to join the delegation to India.

USTR spokesperson said, “Since India’s election period has now passed, USTR officials will be visiting India for relationship-building with their Indian government counterparts, including introductory meetings for the new Assistant USTR for India, Christopher Wilson.”

The development has come days after US President Donald Trump has accused India of implementing high import tariffs over American products.

This coming meeting will be the first dialogues between the US and India on the trade issues after a meeting held in Osaka, Japan, on the sidelines of the G20 summit.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Trump said, “India has long had a field day putting Tariffs on American products. No longer acceptable!”

The United States and India had last month acknowledged trade issues between the two nations and committed to vanishing difference between them.

Addressing media conference after concluding a meeting with the visiting Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, Indian external affairs minister (MEA) S. Jaishankar has said both the sides need to take “constructive and pragmatic view” over the issues pertaining to trade.

In his remarks, Pompeo said the US and India need to resolve their trade differences as there remains millions of opportunity in front of both nations, adding, “The two countries will be able to see a good outcome for each other.”
