    The statement by the commerce ministry released on Thursday said, "Export of raw sugar from India to China will begin early next year. A contract for exporting 15,000 tonnes of raw sugar has been entered to by the Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) and COFCO, a Government of China run public sector company". Further the issued statement underlined India's plan to export 2 million tonnes of sugar to China to reduce trade deficit with the neighboring nation. "It is a move to reduce the $60 billion trade deficit that China has with India," the statement said.

    Raw sugar will be the second product after non-basmati rice that China will import from the Indian sub-continent.

Domestic sugar manufacturing companies have been asked by the Indian government to compulsorily export 5 million tonnes in order to liquidate excess sugar stock. Also, the government has come up with financial aid to enable outward shipments. Meanwhile it is negotiating with some of the nations including China and Indonesia to boost sugar exports.
