My dear fellow exporters,

The much delayed Russia-India-China (RIC) Foreign Ministers` Trilateral meeting took place on December 11th 2017 in New Delhi. This is the first high level visit from China to India since the two sides decided to disengage  after the Doklam standoff.

All the ministers have been here to to deliberate on a range of pressing regional and global issues, including ways to tackle the threat of terrorism and extremism, at the key meeting of the grouping. India is eyeing a strong commitment from the RIC nations against terror groups active in South Asia similar to the formulation in the last BRICS Summit. 

Discussions were also made regarding progress in the development of the 7,200-kilometer International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC) that links India, Iran, Afghanistan, and Central Asia with Europe. All the three nations discussed ways to broaden consultations among the three on the Asia-Pacific region.

Products with Export Potential for India

Comparative advantage vis-à-vis peers in terms of manufacturing costs, market knowledge, technology and creativity has been a driving force for engineering exports from India. Engineering exports from India stood at US$ 65.23 billion in FY 2016-17. The export of engineering goods grew by 11.33 per cent year-on-year. Top ten importers of Indian engineering products during FY 2016-17 were US (US$ 7.06 billion), UAE (US$ 4.03 billion), Singapore (US$ 2.80 billion), UK (US$ 2.48 billion), Mexico (US$ 2.45 billion), Malaysia (US$ 2.39 billion), Germany (US$ 2.21 billion), Nepal (US$ 2.16 billion), Italy (US$ 2.08 billion) and Bangladesh (US$ 1.99 billion). The EU, ASEAN+2 and North America recorded the highest shipment of engineering products from India, with a share of 21 per cent, 16 per cent and 15 per cent respectively in total engineering exports in FY 2016-17. Capacity creation in sectors like infrastructure, power, mining, oil & gas, refinery steel, automotives, and consumer durables has been driving demand in the engineering sector. Separately, the approval of significant number of special economic zones (SEZs) across the country and the development of the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) across seven States is expected to further bolster the engineering sector.

Significant Trends in Trade and Investment

Details of significant trends 

Canadian exports to India continue to grow each month of this year, however they have dipped to 32% more than the same period last year (they were 57% more in July). The gap between export and import growth is maintained, with a 28% difference between them (it was nearly 50% in July). India has therefore performed better over the past 2 months of this year, narrowing the export and import gaps. Exports of mineral fuels and oils witnessed the highest growth compared to last year, at nearly threefold, and they are the second largest export to India. As with prior months, agricultural products (Edible Vegetables and Certain Roots and Tubers, Fertilizers) to India continue to maintain constant growth and continue to be the largest share of exports (26%). Due to Alberta’s oil sands, Mineral fuels are Canada’s largest export to the world, along with the highest growth rate. Aircrafts and Spacecrafts showed the 2nd highest growth rate, although this group is only the 9th biggest export to India. On the other hand, Inorganic Chemicals and Compounds of Precious Metals and Radioactive Elements experienced the biggest drop in exports as compared to the corresponding period with a 10% decline. In terms of imports from India, Pharmaceutical products continued to have the highest growth rate (18%), while Nuclear Reactors and Mechanical Appliances continued their downward trend during this year (9%). A notable feature of Canadian imports from India is that the shares of each of the top 10 imports do not vary widely, all coming within the 3-7% range of total imports.

Analysis 

Canada’s total trade balance with India has historically been very low, and the trend has been continuing this year. The total trade balance, including exports and imports, is less than 1% of Canada’s total global trade balance. This is despite the significant 32% growth in Canadian exports over the corresponding period from last year. Canada’s exports to India have maintained their growth trajectory over the course of 2017, staying at nearly eight times its imports from India. By contrast, its growth in worldwide exports is only 1.5 times that of the growth in its worldwide imports. Canada enjoys a YTD trade surplus of $106 million with India, although India is a minor trade partner of Canada. As with prior months of this year, Canada maintains a trade deficit with the world, amounting to nearly $10 billion in the YTD reporting period. With respect to competitors of India’s top 5 exports to Canada, the US and China always feature as the top competitor in each of the five categories. India faces very tough competition from these two largest trading partners of Canada.

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 foreign investment in Tunisia during 2016 was worth US$ 0.901 billion. 

Foreign investment flow reached 1, 648.4 MTD, growing 13.6% in the first nine months of 2017 in comparison with the same period last year. It included 1, 592.
