My dear fellow exporters,

The European Commission (EC) has initiated safeguard investigation on steel products including stainless hot rolled quarto plates, grain-oriented electrical sheet, non-alloy and other alloy merchant bars and light, sections, rebars and many more to ascertain whether import tariffs imposed by the US need to be countered to prevent Asian producers from flooding the European market, a move that may have a significant bearing on India’s steel exports.

The Commission’s decision to initiate safeguard action is being seen as a key retaliatory move against US President Donald Trump’s move to impose steep tariffs on steel imports which have hit the European Union (EU) badly. While the US has for the time being suspended the tariffs, the EC is seen readying its ammunition to combat the fallout of what looks like the beginning of a long drawn out trade war.

Exporters who want to take part in the exercise have been requested to complete a questionnaire and respond within 21 days. We have already intimated to our members and requested them to respond.

The “Guest of Honour’ privilege comes in the backdrop of the historic visit of PM Shri Narendra Modi to Riyadh in April, 2016 and the historic bilateral relations. The Festival provided a vivid platform to project India’s resilient economy, technical acumen, scientific progress, investment potential, flagship programmes, tourism and culture. Minister of State for External Affairs Gen. Dr. V. K. Singh  visited Riyadh (3-5 Feb, 2018) and addressed the joint press conference with Saudi Minister of National Guard H.E Prince Khalid bin Abdulaziz Al-Ayyaf. External Affairs Minister Smt Sushma Swaraj (EAM) jointly inaugurated the India Pavilion at the Janadriyah festival with His Majesty King Salman. EAM took Saudi Foreign Minister H. E Adel Al Jubeir a round of the India pavilion. Later, EAM addressed the inauguration ceremony and thanked the Saudi leadership for according the honour to India. EAM also highlighted the historic links between India-Saudi Arabia and called for diversifying and deepening the current ties beyond oil. President, ICCR also visited the Festival and had interactions with the Saudi Officials. Considering the huge response, the Saudi Government extended the festival for 4 days, which resulted in the festival from 7-28 Feb, 2018.

Ministry of External Affairs chose the theme ‘Saudi ka dost Bharat’ for the Indian component of the festival. Keeping in mind, the front façade part was designed with the tagline ‘Saudi ka dost Bharat’ trilingual (Hindi, Arabic and English). The India pavilion comprised the friendship wall, traditional & contemporary India, business stalls, states part, flavours of India and information desk. The friendship wall is a collection of rare and historic photographs of the historic bilateral relations and its discourse over the years. The friendship wall began with the picture of historic visit of then King Saudi to India in 1955 and culminated with the landmark visit of PM Narendra Modi to Riyadh in April, 2016. The traditional India segment comprised the ‘Incredible India’, AYUSH, Handicrafts, Textiles and the much desired ‘Yoga Man’, while the contemporary India segment concentrated more on the modern technological skills of India displaying Ordnance Factory Board (OFB), Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Ministry of Shipping, National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and Ministry of Food Processing Industries.

The business stalls included the Indian companies/firms namely Larsen & Toubro, LuLu, Tata Motors, ITL, Shapoorji Pallonji, Telecommunications Consultants India Limited, Virat Group, KBRL Rice, Al Abeer Medical Group, Aster Medcity, Max Healthcare, Artemis Healthcare, Jet Airways, Gateways Travels, Masah Construction, MDH Masala, Spice board, Tea board and Coffee board and Flavours of India. The companies/firms displayed their prominence in their respective sectors, had installed video walls, displayed modes, distributed brochures which evinced interest in the visitors and attracted huge gathering to the India pavilion. The Jaguar displayed by the Tata Motors garnered huge attention, sending a strong message on the vibrant automobile sector and the fact that Jaguar is an Indian product. Also, Jaguar was part of the numerous selfies by the Saudi visitors. The Arabic calligraphy exhibits was well received by the Saudi citizens which was well evident by the number of questions answered by the Exhibitors.

The States part and the flavours of India stole the show of the India pavilion. The states part involved the participation of 11 states (Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telengana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar) decorating the states stalls with models, banners, roll-ups, handicraft items, textiles indigenous to their respective states and presenting the Indian concept of ‘Unity in Diversity ‘ to the visitors. The visitors were really awe-struck by the cultural diversity and also the historic richness, economic potential & investment opportunities and culinary skills each state had to offer. Besides the states part displaying their indigenous culinary delight, an exclusive part ‘Flavours of India’ adding authentic gustatory delight to the visitors with the cuisines from different parts of India. Embassy of India, Riyadh had also an information desk which provided the relevant and useful information about India to the visitors.

Besides the business related part, the Cultural part comprising Yoga demonstrations, dances, martial arts, and screening of Indian films/documentaries was well received by the Saudi audience resulting in the flooding of the cultural area completely jam-packed. The Yoga demonstrations attracted huge gathering with the crowds increasing in numbers as the festival proceeded. The cultural performances involved two shows per day characterized by the classical dances, martial parts from all the four corners of India namely, Kathakali, Kalariyaptu, kathak, Rajasthani, Gujrati, Maniuri, Purulia Chhau, Bhangra and Bollywood. Needless to say, Bollywood and Bhangra with their colourful dresses and racy beats enthralled the audiences, especially the Saudi women. Screening of Indian films/documentaries followed the cultural performances. The Indian Flag flying high at the minaret of the India pavilion and the tri-coloured laden Cultural stage remained a huge attraction to the visitors.
