    It looks like India does not learn its lessons that easily. Depending on china for its input requirements is like depending on shylock for goodness. Sooner or later they are going to leave us high and dry. We need to depend on our own strengths and abilities however attractive china may appear.

    Country with iron curtain therefore lack of transparency in its dealings. Can't be trusted.our long term interests may not be safe while dealing with that country.There exists a lack of trust due to its unilateral offensive against India in 1962.It blatantly continues to support Pakistan on controversial issues and needle India needlessly. The delay in cautioning the world in time on Wuhan Virus has further cast a shadow on the growing mistrust on its intentions. Need to look inwards and develop our own Industry. We are capable of equally cheap but quality stuff with so much of young work force available to us. Hope we tighten up screws on our Bureaucracy which is notoriously famous for Red tapism and simplify the rules of engagement with countries like USA to turn India into a world class manufacturing hub.With Leaders like Modi ji at the helm, it is possible.

    Total trade should be stopped immediately for sake of our country's safety from spreading the novel Corona viruses
    Govt of India should take initiative immediately.
