As the world moves away from a dependence on imported fruits and veggies, India is going to need a lot of them.
The government of India announced on Tuesday that the fruits, vegetables, grains and fruits and nuts it imports from the United States, Europe and elsewhere will be replaced by locally grown produce.
The move comes at a time when the global trade surplus with India is on the decline.
The surplus is expected to shrink to about $1 trillion in 2020 from $8 trillion now.
India is already facing the largest food shortages in the world.
But the new policy is aimed at giving farmers a fresh start and making them more efficient and more productive.
According to the government, the goal is to save about 2.3 billion tons of fruit and vegetables annually.
That’s a huge amount of food that is already in the ground.
But many Indian farmers will be the losers.
India has about 4.5 billion people.
The country has some of the world’s most expensive fruits and vegetable prices.
But its farmers, particularly small and medium-sized businesses, are facing high prices for the fruits that they can’t sell for a profit.
It’s not clear how many fruits and plants will be lost to the new scheme.
India is also losing about one-third of its total vegetable and fruit production to foreign buyers.
The United States imports about 80% of its fruits and veg.
The U.K., the world leader in food imports, imports about 75%.
The European Union is importing about half of its produce, while Brazil and Canada are the largest exporters.
The rest comes from India.
The new food policy comes as a part of the Narendra Modi government’s efforts to improve India’s agricultural sector and boost the country’s agricultural exports.
Modi has said the government will “make the country an agricultural superpower” and is pushing to make India one of the top producers of food.
