5 ways how India stands to benefit from the US pulling out of TPP


United States President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday said the US will quit the TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP (TPP) trade deal on his first day in the WHITE HOUSE. The mega trade deal involves 12 Pacific rim nations including major economies like Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

5) Greater chance of bilateral boost to trade by India and US:
