8. US-India Trade Ties: India's reluctance to give equitable market access to the American companies led to the withdrawal of the generalised system of preferences (GSP), the US commerce secretary Wilbur Ross said on Thursday.

He said that the US industry is confronted by tariff and non-tariff barriers in India particularly in e-commerce, data localisation, and price control.
