TOKYO -- India's top diplomat has complained of the very small presence of Indian products competing in the Chinese market, indicating India's intention to call on China to open up to more Indian imports.

"We believe that there are many sectors where we are competitive in the rest of the world, but we have not been able to get a market share in China," Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, the minister of external affairs, said in a recent interview with Nikkei. His remarks apparently echoed New Delhi's discontent with the fact that Indian information technology equipment and other competitive exports have failed to gain significant market shares in China.
