India's exports to China, during the first nine months of the current financial year also declined by 25.10 per cent while imports from China declined by 7.7 per cent when compared to April-December 2011-12.

As trade between the two countries steady grew from $42.44 billion in 2009-10 to 58.96 billion in 2010-11 and further to $75.59 billion in 2011-12, India's trade deficit with China has also grown from $19.21 billion in 2009-10 to $28.00 billion in 2010-11 and to $39.44 billion in 2011-12, trader statistics showed.
