India and China today signed a bilateral agreement on continuing the sharing of hydrological data on the Brahmaputra river. Another bilateral agreement was signed on expanding rice exports to China.

The agreements were announced after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping met in Qingdao, ahead of Sundays Shanghai Cooperation Organisation meet.

An MoU between China’s Ministry of Water Resources and the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation on provision of hydrological data enables China to share flood season data to India from May 15 to October 15 every year.

The Data was not shared last year, with China citing landslides in Tibet but coming amid the strained ties during the Doklam stand-off. China has now pledged to share data with India during the flood season, and to also provide data if the water level exceeds mutually agreed levels during the non-flood season.

Meanwhile, Modi and Xi are also expected to explore ways to deepen ties in areas of trade and investment, besides reviewing the overall India-China bilateral cooperation.
