Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to India has resulted in a number of deals between the two countries in the fields of infrastructure, energy and industrial zones.

Xi met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as Delhi and Beijing are embroiled in recent border dispute.

High-speed railroads are now to be built in India under the new deals, and cooperation in the aerospace and telecoms industry is to be boosted, Bloomberg has reported.

China and India are to work closer on the use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

Trade turnover between the two neighbors, home to nearly a third of the world's population, has skyrocketed to USD 70 B (as of last year), from just USD 1 B in 2001.
