The agreements were signed post the delegation-level talks, in the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who reached Qingdao for the two-day summit.

Further talking about China’s Ministry of Water Resources and India’s Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation signed the MoU under which China would provide hydrological information to India regarding the Brahmaputra River during the flood season.

The second MoU was signed between China’s General Administration of Customs and India’s Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare. Under the agreement, the 2006 Protocol on Phytosanitary Requirements for exporting rice from India to China has been amended to include the export of non-Basmati varieties of rice from India.

Both the MoU’s signed by India and China seem to have equal benefits on each country, as on one hand India is receiving beneficiary from China and giving away equal weightage of grains to China. These agreements are believed to sought out the border differences among the two countries and of course better relations in future.
