China has regained its position as India's top trading partner despite a decaying relationship between the Asian neighbours.
The two countries were involved in a bloody border conflict last year and saw India ban 220 Chinese tech apps.But that did not stop China leapfrogging the US in 2020 to become India's biggest trade partner.
Two-way trade between the long-standing economic and strategic Asian rivals stood at $77.7bn (£55.2bn) last year.
Total imports from China stood at $58.7bn, which were more than India's combined purchases from the US and UAE - its second and third largest trade partners.
India's government banned TikTok, WeChat and more than 200 other Chinese-made apps in June saying they were a danger to the country.
