THE United States wants to step up its trade dialogue with India, Trade Representative Michael Froman said on Monday, after the resolution of a global trade dispute paved the way for President Barack Obama to visit India.

Direct contacts between Mr Obama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi this month helped to end a deadlock that had prevented the World Trade Organization (WTO) from implementing a US$1 trillion package of reforms to global customs rules. "The breakthrough at the WTO could not have been possible without the direct and personal engagement of Prime Minister Modi and President Obama," Mr Froman told businessmen in New Delhi.
