I guess you know that China & India are the 2 fastest growing economies in the world and that the US cannot prosper without these 2 countries as trading partners. But fair trade is the rule of the game. Logically, Harley Davidson wants to enter the Indian market , one the world’s largest for motorbikes. And India wants to sell its mangoes (it is the world’s largest producer) to the United States. But the US banned mangoes from India 18 years ago over concerns that Indian farmers used too many pesticides. So here the deal. Indian farmers will irradiate the fruit to kill any pests. In exchange Harley-Davidson will be able to export motorcycles under Euro 3 emission standards (the standard adopted by the European Community). Bilateral trade in goods and services could hit $50 billion this year, on track to hit goals set during Bush’s visit of doubling trade in three years. No word to know if an Indian farmer will be able to go to his local Harley dealer and pay his new bike with mangoes, and if yes, how many he will need for each model.
