India intends to earn an additional US$1.5bn in export revenue by exporting apparel, textiles, folding bicycles and home furnishing products to Argentina. According to The Economic Times in India, the government believe high-end bicycles and bicycle products alone have a US$1bn export opportunity to Indian exporters with another US$300-500m from apparel and textiles industry.

Argentina’s imports from India valued US$708.7m in 2017-18, whereas export revenues reached US$2.2bn. India’s trade deficit is due to bulk imports, mainly soybean oil, petroleum, copper, sunflower oil, leather, wool, and ferroalloys.
