  • However, now they have risen back in the past to month to the pre-lockdown levels.
  • The primary reason for the rise according to experts is Chinese exports of medical supplies.
  • Two-way trade continues to be heavily tilted in China’s favour, with India’s exports, which are up 6.7% year-on-year.
  • The slump in China’s exports to India contrasts with its recovery overall.
