Digital Desk, New Delhi. During the Corona period, not only India but all the countries of the world have expressed their displeasure with China. Former US President Donald Trump had openly made many allegations against China. At the same time, Chinese goods were boycotted fiercely in India and slogans were also raised against it. But, even after all this, now medical imports with China have increased by 75 percent.
Due to the border dispute, there is fierce opposition to Chinese goods in India. Campaigns to boycott Chinese goods were carried out in many places. But, these figures are not correct for India becoming self-reliant. Because medical imports from China alone have increased by 75 per cent during the last financial year and the government is promoting Make in India.
What was the increase in imports
According to the report of Times of India, in 2020-21, China has overtaken America and Germany in terms of medical imports and itself has come at number one. Significantly, there has been an increase of 75% on Medtech and medical devices from China, which include oximeters, diagnostic instruments, digital thermometers and chemical reagents.
Before China, India used to import the largest number of medical supplies from America and Germany. But, these figures are quite shocking because the mutual tension between the two countries and such business relations will surprise anyone. According to the news of Aaj Tak, the import of 58 medical devices has increased from 25 percent to 42 thousand percent during 2020-21.
