FedEx has started direct cargo flights between southern China and India in response to rising demand for shipment of items such as electronics, pharmaceuticals, documents and clothing, Bloomberg reported. Services will run five times a week between Guangzhou and the Indian cities of Mumbai and Delhi. "We’re connecting all of Asia to Mumbai and Delhi and back," said David Cunningham Jr, Asia Pacific president of FedEx Express. "China is, from a domestic standpoint for the past 20 years and likely for the future, going to continue to be one of the fastest-growing economies in the world." Both nations have seen a strong rebound in trade. China’s imports rose 38% year-on-year to US$130.4 billion in November, while exports reached US$153.3 billion, up 35%. India saw exports for the month rise 27% to US$18.9 billion, with imports gaining 11% to US$27.8 billion. China wants trade with India to hit US$100 billion by 2015.
