India has a developing mixed economy and is ranked 7th largest by GDP and 3rd largest by PPP in the world. Since 2014, (not including 2017), the country’s economy has been the fastest growing major economy in the world, hence surpassing China.
Having an established agriculture and industry sectors as well as a fast-growing service sector, India engages in foreign trade by exporting products from these dominating sectors. Currently, it ranks as the 18th largest exporter in the world. Its major exports include diamonds, raw sugar, cars, leather footwear, and refined petroleum among others.
However, India currently has more imports than its exports and this has led to a negative trade balance. Major imports include vehicle parts, gold, crude petroleum, telephones, and copper among others. Its major trade partners include China, the US, the UK, Germany, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and more. Some of these countries hold trade agreements with India such as Singapore and Thailand, to name a few. Hence, India has a promising market for your sea and air freight explorations.
