The Indian government and officials are also instigating populist behavior in the country. On June 17, the Ministry of Telecommunications of India ordered BSNL Telecommunications Corporation and other state-owned enterprises under its direct management to "use Indian-made equipment as much as possible" when upgrading infrastructure and equipment. On June 18, Rajda Sabha Congressman Ramdas Athawale said on Twitter, "China has failed us. India should boycott all Chinese-made products and close all restaurants selling Chinese food in India. And bar".
However, the voice of boycotting Chinese goods in India is very loud, but it is always "thunder and heavy rain". After the Sino-Indian army Doklam confrontation in June 2017, there was a wave of boycotts of Chinese goods in India. It is embarrassing that since then India’s imports from China have not decreased but increased. Data from the Chinese Ministry of Commerce shows that India imported US$38.3 billion worth of goods from China in the second half of 2017, an increase of 19.2% year-on-year, and the growth rate increased by 1.1 percentage points from the first half.
In addition, the global manufacturing industry chain is a whole, and China is an important part of it. If India wants to make a difference in the global manufacturing industry chain, it will definitely use Chinese goods. Taking the pharmaceutical industry as an example, Indian pharmaceutical companies produce 20% of the world's generic drugs, but require a large amount of organic chemical products produced in China as raw materials. At the beginning of 2020, due to the impact of the new coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, Chinese raw material production enterprises were temporarily suspended, and some Indian pharmaceutical companies were also forced to stop production due to insufficient raw material stocks.
Indian economist Swaminathan Aiyar (Swaminathan Aiyar) believes that China is an integral part of today's global industrial chain. India wants to go further in the global industrial chain and will only import more Chinese products. Therefore, India is now inseparable from Chinese goods, and the future development and upgrading of manufacturing industry is inseparable from Chinese goods.
