    Barack Obama, the US president, has arrived in India's financial capital Mumbai on the first leg of a 10-day trip to Asia that aims to boost exports and create US jobs.

    Business between the two countries totals around $40b per year and after Obama's visit the figure is expected to rise.

    But some local Indian companies fear there is a rise in American protectionism as US outsourcing cuts dramatically hurt their businesses.
