For the first time, India has allowed the import of pork and its products from the United States.
According to the international news agency, the United States has welcomed India’s decision to lift the ban on pork and its products.
US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Welsek and US Trade Representative Catherine Tai said in a statement that India’s decision to allow pork to enter its market from the United States was a positive development in trade relations between the two countries.
Catherine Tai, the US envoy at the “Trade Policy Forum” held in the Indian capital in November last year, emphasized the importance of access to the Indian pork market from the US.
As a result of trade agreements between India and the United States, the United States exported only 1.6 billion worth of agricultural products to India, and is now expected to export billions of dollars worth of pork.
