chairman

My dear fellow exporters,

The Interim Budget 2019-20 has been presented by the Union Finance Minister, Mr. Piyush Goyal. The fiscal deficit is expected to be around 3.4% of the GDP while the first step towards a Universal Basic Income (UBI) Scheme for smaller farmers has been initiated. Similarly, income tax exemption has been provided for incomes till Rs 5 lakhs of annual income. I understand that all the tax related proposals are likely to be ratified when a full budget is presented by the newly elected Government in July 2019.

On behalf of EEPC India, we welcome the announcement of 2 per cent interest subvention for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) for loans up to Rs. 1 crore.  

The budget gives a clear vision of the ease of doing business by committing increased investment to projects relating to key infrastructure projects which would definitely reduce cost of transaction for India`s exports. Be it roads, sea ports, airports, roads and railways under different flagship programmes like Sagarmala projects they would help reducing time for the container movement right from source of the shipment to the export destinations.

The infrastructure development must be done year after year to make India`s exports competitive so that export growth which had been slackening can revive sooner than later.

Two-wheelers power India`s EV revolution
Bangkok Post  14.01.2019

The government has set a target of electric vehicles making up 30% of new sales of cars and motorcycles by 2030 from less than 1% today. Hurt by high fuel prices, Vinod Gore, a farmer in Gove village in the western Indian state of Maharashtra, ditch his petrol scooter for an electric model, underlining how two-wheelers are driving the country’s goal of electrification of its vehicles. Gore`s electric scooter, built by Indian startup Okinawa, runs for about 100-120 km on a single charge which costs the sugarcane farmer less than 10% of the 150 rupees ($2.15) he would otherwise have spent on fuel for the same distance.

Venezuela
(Source : Embassy of India, Caracas)

India to keep oil trade with Venezuela: According to media reports (oilprice.com & financialexpress.com), India would continue to trade with Venezuela, despite the ongoing crisis in Venezuela. Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaidó, the president of the National Assembly, declared himself interim president on 23 January 2019, and the United States supported him against Nicolas Maduro. India continues to be one of the main buyers of Venezuelan crude oil. The report indicates that Indian refiners keep buying more than 400,000 bpd of oil from Venezuela. The report added that in recent months, Venezuela has been the fourth largest supplier of crude oil to India, after Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). India imported crude oil from Venezuela worth US$ 5.8 billion in the financial year 2017-2018, while imports between April and October 2018 were valued at US$ 4.6 billion.
