    My dear fellow exporters,

    The Ministry of Defence (MoD), Government of India recently released draft Defence Production and Export Promotion Policy 2020 (DPEPP 2020). The DPEPP 2020 is envisaged as an overarching guiding document of MoD to provide a focused, structured and significant thrust to defence production capabilities of the country for self-reliance and exports.

    In order to provide impetus to self-reliance in defence manufacturing, multiple announcements were made under `Atmanirbhar Bharat Package`. The policy has stepped ahead and laid out goals and objectives to achieve a turnover of Rs 1,75,000 Crores (USD 25Bn) including export turnover of Rs 35,000 Crore (USD 5 Bn) in Aerospace and Defence goods and services by 2025.

    The goals also include developing a dynamic, robust and competitive Defence industry, including Aerospace and Naval Shipbuilding industry to cater to the needs of Armed forces with quality products. Through domestic design and development, the goal will be to reduce dependence on imports and take forward "Make in India" initiatives.

    It will also look into investment promotion, FDI and Ease of Doing Business. As per the policy, attention will also be on the Defence PSUs and Ordnance Factory Board, Quality Assurance and Testing Infrastructure and export Promotion.

    EEPC India welcomes the policy and believes that the move would help in promoting export of defence products from India and to become part of the global defence value chains.

     

    Mahesh Desai 

    Amidst India’s faltering merchandise export growth and prolonged contraction in export credit growth, exporters have at least seen some silver lining as both the domestic government and the monetary regulatory authority RBI have been in consultation to ease priority sector lending norms for exports in order to ensure higher flow of credit towards export sector, according to news source. The Commerce and Industry minister has very recently held a meeting with senior public-sector bankers to push for easier and higher flow of credit disbursalfor exporters at cheaper rates. The government is expected to announce a slew of measures to boost export growth very soon while the RBI is also likely to change credit norms in favour of the exporters.

     

    The measures to reinvigorate export credit has been the demand of the exporters as many MSME exporters have already been forced to go out of business due to excessive financial crunch and many are facing the same threat. To ensure availability of hassle-free credit to small exporters is a priority for the commerce minister.According to the latest RBI data, export credit of scheduled banks shrank as much as 36.1% year-on-year as of June 21, even on a low base of 42.7% contraction a year earlier.

     

    The interest subvention provided to the exporters to the extent of three to five percent on bank credit has to make way for suitable alternative as WTO has raised objection to this kind of schemes on the ground of non-compliance. An alternative mechanism to facilitate export credit is desperately required. EEPC India has already suggested refund of embedded taxes for the exporters.

     

    EEPC India, as a premiere trade and investment promotion body under the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, wholeheartedly thank the government for its initiative to revive exports from India.

    Canada’s Preferential / Free Trade Agreement with India

    Discussions on Bilateral Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (BIPPA) and Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) have continued. The 4th Annual Trade Ministerial Dialogue was held on 13 November 2017 in New Delhi. During the meeting, both sides expressed their strong commitment for early finalization of a progressive, balanced and mutually beneficial CEPA and BIPPA. The last round of CEPA negotiation was held in Ottawa on February 7-8, 2018, while the last round of BIPPA negotiation was held in New Delhi in November 2017.

    In May 2020, conversations were held between India and Canada to schedule a digital video conference (DVC) on 22 June 2020 for further discussing CEPA and FIPA (Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement) negotiations.

    Potential products of exports for India

    Due to impact of COVID-19 pandemic, there is a contraction of Canadian domestic demand as Canadian economic activity has reduced. This has impacted demand for Indian goods across the spectrum, except the Pharmaceutical sector. The dampening of Pharmaceutical and related sector may arise due to restrictions on exports of certain items from India.

    However, on 4 May 2020, Canada received 5 million tablets of hydroxychloroquine from India as a part of Indian government’s decision to fight the pandemic globally. The Canadian pharmaceutical imports from India saw an increase of 5.7% Jan-May 2020 over the corresponding period last year.

    Another sector from Indian exports to Canada that has seen considerable appreciation in Jan-May 2020 (12.7%) are articles of iron or steel in form of steel pipes (line & circular). Line pipes, tubes, tapes, cocks, grinding balls and valves made of iron or steel has been majorly supplied from India on the back of the country’s strong manufacturing base to Canada’s vast oil and gas pipelines. Canada are under construction including the US$ 12.6 billion Trans Mountain Pipeline, it is expected that the export of steel pipes from India to Canada will continue to increase in the coming months during the course of resumption of international trade post Covid-19 disruption.

    Indian exports of Fish, Crustaceans, Molluscs and Other Aquatic Invertebrates to Canada saw an increase of 8.7% in Jan-May 2020. This is another sector/area where there is significant scope for expansion of Indian exports to Canada with India currently being the fourth-biggest seafood exporter in the world and the top exporter of shrimp to USA for the last four years. On the other hand, Canada`s fish and seafood sector is a growing and vital part of the Canadian economy, led by the country’s vast export portfolio, Canadian imports of Fish, Crustaceans & Other Aquatic Invertebrates stood at USD 720 million in Jan-May 2020, dominated by USA, China, Chile and Vietnam with India in the 5th position.

    Details of Significant Trends –

    Investment - At the end of 2019, the flow of foreign investment reached in Tunisia, 2,648.2 million dinars (MDT) (around 939.07 $ US million) against 2,866.3 MDT (around $ US million 1016.41) in 2018, a decrease of -7.6%, according to the Promotion Agency foreign investment (Fipa Tunisia).

    This amount is divided between foreign direct investment (FDI) of 2,479.1 MTD (around 879.11 $ US million) (a decrease of 9.6%) and 169.1 MTD (around 59.69 $ US million) in the portfolio with an increase of 36.2%.In addition, foreign investment in the energy sector decreased by -0.1% compared to 2018 to reach 909.4 MTD (around 322.84 $ US million), a rather stable situation. The services sector, also dropped by 51.8% compared to 2018 while the agricultural sector only received 18.6 MD (around 6.59 $ US million) of total investments in 2019.

    Analysis - FDI currently represents 10% of productive investments, generates one-third of exports and over 15% of the total number of jobs. Tunisian Government provides many incentives to promote foreign investment in Tunisia.  About 3353 foreign companies operate in Tunisia in diverse sectors. The Government has primarily encouraged export-oriented FDI in key industrial sectors, such as call centers, electronics, aerospace and aeronautics, automotive parts, and textile/apparel manufacturing. Foreign participation is allowed in the privatization program of state-owned or state-controlled enterprises. This has attracted a significant share of Tunisia’s FDI in recent years. The privatization programme has taken place mainly in telecommunications, banking, insurance, manufacturing, and fuel distribution.

    The total foreign investment in Tunisia during 2018 was recorded $US 983.5 m and 939.07 $ USD million on 2019.  The main investment sectors are textile, computer science, corporate services, energy and tourism. The sectoral distribution today shows a definite orientation towards industrialization.
