My dear fellow exporters,

While India’s merchandise exports witnessed downward trend in the current fiscal due to a number of global as well as domestic bottlenecks and both the trade as well as economic outlook looked depressing at least in the near term, the domestic government was reportedly looking for ways to provide some cushion to the Indian exporting community. According to WTO rules, India needed to roll back its export incentive schemes like MEIS as its per capita GNI exceeded USD 1000 for three years in a row and the Indian government was scheduled to withdraw all such export sops by the end of the calendar year 2019.

A new scheme called The Remission of Duties or Taxes on Export Product (RoDTEP) scheme has been decided to replace the existing export incentive schemes from the beginning of 2020 but that is yet to be approved by the cabinet. At this juncture, the government is considering the option to keep the existing sops in place for three more months and continue them till the end of fiscal 2019-20 according to media reports. This move will bring some respite for the exporters as they are skeptical on the benefits of the new scheme. However, it is expected that the new scheme will be at least as beneficial as the existing one.

 

Ravi Sehgal 

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.

Potential products of Imports from India

Textile (5911) - Egypt’s textile industry is experiencing a revival. In January 2018, Egyptian government announced plans to develop Egypt’s biggest textile city in Sadat and is working on a policy initiative to boost value addition in textile industry. This would create more demand for raw materials and inputs particularly yarn.

India exported around US$ 323 Million worth of textiles & clothing products to Egypt during 2018-19. Cotton Yarn was the dominant product in the export basket, which is valued at US$ 223.39 Million followed by Manmade Yarn fibers valued at US$ 84.6 Million and knitted & crocheted fabrics valued at US$ 10.4 Million.

Pharmaceuticals (30006 ) - Egypt requires vaccines, oncology products, medicines to cure Hepatitis C, disposables and bio-similar. India exported US$ 113.43 million worth of pharmaceutical APIs, Herbal products, surgical and AYUSH to Egypt during 2017-18.

Automobile and auto components (8708) - Egypt is strategically located close to many developing countries with open markets for car imports. The Egyptian automotive Market Volume in 2018 reached 19,804 vehicles (15088 are passenger cars, 1586 buses and 3130 trucks) compared to 14,673 vehicles in 2017 (with increase of 35.6 %) All auto majors like GM, Toyota, BMW, and Hyundai have presence in Egypt. Our exports of automobiles during 2018-19 were USD 136.2 million and auto components were USD 77.5 million in the same period (Total 213.4 Million USD).

Following the implementation of zero tariffs for automobile imports from EU to Egypt early this year, as per provisions of Egyptian – European Partnership Agreement, there were some concerns among local auto component manufacturers on likely adverse impact on them. However, the Egyptian Government has recently come up with customs incentive scheme to protect local manufacturing while at the same time keeping the doors open for imports.

Bajaj has a partnership with Ghabbour of Egypt for CKD assembly of two and three wheelers for Egyptian markets. TVS and Mahindra also have presence in the market.

Project exports in railways, construction, renewable energy, infrastructure etc.(Railway Items: 86) (Electrical Machinery:85 - Egypt has announced various mega projects which have created opportunities for the project exports by the Indian companies.

Venezuela
(Source : Embassy of India, Caracas)

India`s Reliance to resume Venezuela oil loadings after four-month pause: According to media reports, Indian refiner Reliance Industries Ltd. is scheduled to resume loading Venezuelan crude in October after a four-month pause, a move that could help Venezuela’s state-run company drain its large oil inventories. A Reliance representative told media this week that it has been supplying Venezuela with fuels permitted under U.S. sanctions, including diesel, and thus it “is able to recommence crude sourcing” in exchange for the refined products. “These are actions compliant with U.S. sanctions as crude sourcing against supply of permitted products is allowed,” the representative said. China National Petroleum Corp and its units stopped taking Venezuelan oil in August. Others, including Reliance, have recently been buying Venezuelan crude from Russian major Rosneft, according to the media reports. Reliance needs the type of heavy sour crude that Venezuela sells because its refineries are configured to process it. U.S. sanctions on both Venezuela and Iran have made it harder for the refiners to find supplies of these crude grades. The Indian firm is sending at least two vessels, the very large crude carriers Antonis I. Angelicoussis and Maran Castor, to Venezuela’s Jose port for loading in late October.
