My dear fellow exporters,

The Centre today released the mid-term review of the Foreign Trade Policy (FTP), with the focus on policy measures to boost the exports of goods and services and to increase employment generation and value-addition in the country.

The focus of the export policy has been to enhance “ease of trading across border”. The Centre focused on revisiting the issues brought forward post GST. New products and new markets like Africa and Latin America have been given special focus to enhance India’s exports. Some of the policy highlights include additional 2% increase under MEIS given on labour intensive products, GST rate for sale or transfer of scrips have been reduced to zero, second hand goods imported for repair purpose/refurbishing have been made free, rationalization on export promotion schemes to continue, Centre has also allowed duty free imports to exports on self certification, freely importable goods will be now allowed for re-export except for SCOMET items, Labour incentives for small business have been increased by 2% and validity for duty credit scrips have been raised to 24 months.

The centre continuously focused that FTP is a dynamic document and regular changes are made to increase value addition in the country, generate more employment and boost exports.

OVERSEAS MARKET INFORMATION

Australia
(Source : Consulate General of India Sydney)

As in the previous months, the balance of trade was heavily in favour of Australia, with Australia exporting merchandise goods to India worth USD 9 billion, while importing goods worth USD 2.9 billion from India for the period Jan-Sep 2017.

Indian merchandise Exports to Australia for the period Jan-Sep 2017 witnessed an increase of 15.9 % over the corresponding period last year. Whereas, during the same period Australian export to India increased by 80 %.

This time we are reporting top 15 items of export and import between India and Australia, unlike till last month, where only top 10 items were reported. Refined Petroleum, Medicaments, Pearls & precious stones, Made up textile articles, jewellery, railway vehicles, organo-inorganic compounds, floor coverings, women /girls clothing, articles of apparels & textile fabrics, travel bags and cases, manufactures of base metal, fixed vegetable fats and oils, furniture and parts, and insecticides & fungicides were dominant commodities of export from India to Australia, in that order. A notable increase in Indian export during Jan-Sep 2017 is Railway vehicles, attributed to the supply of “Made in India” metro train coaches to Australia at USD 72 m with the growth of 80 % over the corresponding period in 2016. Another noteworthy increase of exports from India to Australia is Organo inorganic compounds, which increased 61 % in Jan-Sep 2017 (value USD 66 m) over the corresponding period last year.

Export of ‘Coal’ from Australia to India was the main contributor for the increase in bilateral trade between the countries for the period Jan-Sep 2017 compared to the corresponding period in 2016. With the export of coal to India witnessing 86.2 % increase during Jan-Sep 2017 compared to the corresponding period in 2016, it pushed the overall bilateral trade by 58.6 %. In value terms, the total trade increased from USD 7.5 b to USD 11.9 b between Jan-Sep 2016 and Jan-Sep 2017. It may be noted that out of USD 11.9 b overall bilateral trade between India and Australia, the export of coal alone, from Australia to India, contributed USD 5.2 b during the reporting period (i.e 44 % of total trade).

Saudi Arabia
(Source : Embassy of India, Riyadh)

During 2016-17, the value of India Saudi Arabia bilateral trade stood at USD 25.07 billion registering a decrease of 6.12% over last year (USD 26.71 billion). Indian imports from Saudi Arabia decreased by 1.85% to USD 19.94 billion (in 2016-17) from USD 20.32 billion (in 2015-16) whereas Indian exports to Saudi Arabia decreased by 19.70% to USD 5.13 billion (in 2016-17) from USSD 6.39 billion (2015-16).

In 2015-16, the bilateral trade decreased to USD 26.71 billion registering a sharp fall of 31.98% from USD 39.27 billion in 2014-15, as per figures provided by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade. The decline was mainly due to low petroleum and commodity prices and lower global demand. [During 2015-16, despite a 14.79% increase in quantity of India’s crude oil (HS Code 27090000) imports from Saudi Arabia (39.59 MMT against 34.49 MMT in 2014-15), the same in value terms decreased by 38.13% (USD 13.49 billion against USD 21.80 billion in 2014-15)].

Saudi Aramco expands in India

Saudi Aramco launched a new Indian venture ‘Aramco Asia Limited in Gurugram (8 Oct), as the global oil exporter looks to tap rising demand and invest in the world’s third-biggest consumer. India’s Petroleum & Natural Gas Minister Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, who jointly inaugurated the local unit with Aramco Chief Executive Amin Nasser, said the move would help pave the way for “a strategic partnership in the hydrocarbon sector” between the two nations. Saudi Arabia is competing with Iraq to be India’s top oil supplier, with Iraq displacing it for a fifth month in a row in August, data compiled by Reuters showed.

Businesses in Kingdom need to prepare for VAT

Businesses in Saudi Arabia must prepare for the upcoming VAT registration deadline of Dec. 20, 2017, according to EY. This follows EY’s VAT seminars held in Riyadh, Jeddah and Al- Khobar. The seminars, attended by delegates from the private sector, aimed to better prepare businesses in Saudi Arabia across all sectors for the upcoming implementation of VAT.  VAT registration is not mandatory for all businesses in Saudi Arabia or across the GCC. Businesses only need to register if the taxable supplies exceed, or are expected to exceed the annual mandatory amount of SR375,000 within twelve months of the registration date. VAT will be applied at either at a standard rate of 5% or at a zero rate (0%). Standard rated supplies include all supplies of goods or services and imports in the KSA. Zero-rated goods and services are taxable at a rate of 0%, meaning a supplier making zero-rated supplies is able to recover the input VAT incurred in respect of those supplies.
