XIASIMA, TIBET: India might be suffering USD 47 billion trade deficit with China, but it is making a big splash in this border town with several shops using 'Made in India' sign boards and traders cashing on border trade through the Nathu La pass.
Many shopkeepers in this small town in the centre of Tibet, who import Indian handicrafts, spices and textiles, use sign boards highlighting 'Made in India goods available'.
The India-China trade through Nathu La, which is just 50 km from this town, is flourishing though it is still just around Rs 17 crore.
China has opened a second route through the Himalayan pass of Nathu La in Sikkim, 4,000 metres above sea level, for the first batch of Kailash-Manasarovar pilgrims.

India has lost completely . manufacturing industry in India has lost thousands of jobs. India has a deficit of more than $50 billion as China imports from India only natural resources but sells to India all kind of manufactured products. we gain nothing from the Indo-China trade.

It's geographically China, but people are Tibetans.
China's par capita income is 6500 US Dollar, and on average is increasing 4 to 5 per-cent each year, while India's par capita income 1400 US Dollar (Source World Bank) and it hovering around 1400 Us Dollar for last 4 years. And we have to accept the fact like Kashmir wants to merge with Pakistan, same with Arunachal Pradesh they want to merge with China, becuse the people of Arunachal pradesh see how much developments have taken place on Chinese side.
This so called border town trade is not even worth writing home about it !
Days are not far when even Chinese will ask for goods "Made in India" and goods made in India will also replace the goods made in China because of it's lower cost.
Even China has to respect Made in India goods as chinese products are cheap and also of no use in long run.

Ready made garments of Indian origin are popular in USA also. I have seen American ladies buying Haldiram namkeens in a Indian store of Michigan.
