US-India biz forum seeks cooperation to face China

By The Assam Tribune

Washington, June 19(PTI): The world's two largest democracies, India and the US should work together to face an assertive China, a US-India business forum has said.

The development followed the introduction of a legislation in the US Congress yesterday to ban purchase of Chinese products with tax payers money. At a function organized by the US India Business Council (USIBC) and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), president of USIBC Ron Somers asked the US and India to work in partnership.

"As we watch this new assertiveness, new Chinese muscularity, it's time that the United States and India come closer as partners than ever before because it's worth it", he said.

US Bill to stop buying Chinese goods: A group of influential Senators have introduced a legislation in the US Congress to stop using Chinese products with tax payer's money as Beijing does not give access to American companies in US$ 500 billion Chinese government procurement market.

"When China fails to play the rules, US tax dollars should not be used to buy Chinese-made products," said Senator Sherrod Brown in a statement after a bi-partisan legislation in the Senate was introduced by four of his other colleagues Debbie Stabenow, Lindsey Graham, Russ Feingold and Bob Casey.

The legislation would prevent Federal taxpayer dollars from buying Chinese products and services until the Chinese government plays by the rules, the Senators said.
