India-US bilateral relationship has been strained recently due to a host of trade and economic issues. India's exports to the US in 2017-18 stood at $47.9 billion, while imports were at $26.7 billion.
India imposed retaliatory tariffs on 28 US products, including almonds and apples, starting 5 June, a year after announcing them to counter the increase in steel and aluminium tariffs by the US and withdrawal of duty-free benefits to Indian exporters. Following the move, the US raised the dispute at the World Trade Organization (WTO).
India also raised customs duties on a host of products, including alloy steel and auto parts, in the budget presented on 5 July.
