India and China are two rapidly emerging economies in world. With their high growth rates and huge markets, these two Asian giants have attracted the attention of international business mangers to take a fresh look at the rapidly emerging opportunities in the two countries. Today, India-China relations are conspicuous by the fast rise of their merchandise trade, which has already crossed US $ 42 billion in 2009-10. China has already become India’s second largest trade partner only after U.A.E. Besides this, China has also become one of the most favorite destinations for Indian exporters. China's share in India's global exports has increased rapidly from just 0.10 per cent in 1990-91 to 6.47 per cent in 2009-10. However, this growth of Indian exports to China has not been equally distributed over various commodity groups. In fact, Indian exports to China are mainly dominated by natural resource based raw material or semi-manufactured products which is not considered to be healthy from Indian point of view. Hence, there is an urgent need to add some technologically advanced products in the export basket to China. According to the need of the time, the present study examines the various trends occurred in growth and structure of Indian exports to China during the last two decades.
