Chouhan's statement comes days after the US slapped tariffs of USD 34 billion on Chinese imports, escalating a fight that could hurt companies and consumers in both the countries.
The new tariffs on Chinese goods will undoubtedly prompt quick retaliation by China, which is expected to impose retaliatory tariffs on American exports, such as soybeans, seafood, SUVs and crude oil.
"I have also discussed this issue with Union Minister for Commerce and Civil Aviation Suresh Prabhu one exporting soybean to China which will bring benefit to the country and state. With this, we can give better price to the farmers and they can also profit through minimum support price (MSP)," he added.
Chouhan further said that the state government is planning to send a delegation to China to strengthen their bilateral trade.
"Suresh Prabhu has given a positive nod over the issue. We will also soon talk to few exporters in Bhopal and Indore concerning the same. I'm also planning to send our delegation to China so that better relations are build up," he said.
