4 Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that a trade agreement between India and the US could be reached soon. After meeting US Finance Minister Steven Newkin on Saturday at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Sitharaman said the governments of the two countries were working at a fast pace on the trade deal and soon some consensus could be reached on the issue.
Sitharaman said, “The US finance minister may visit India in early November. Before that some terms of trade agreements were discussed between us. However, it is currently being negotiated by Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. I have come to know that the two countries are joining strongly for the agreement.
