Xi May Push For Rcep, But Modi May Stress On Trade Deficit

India and China are likely to announce additional confidencebuilding measures (CBMs) to strengthen relationship between the two countries when Chinese president Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi meet in Mamallapuram later this week.
