My dear fellow exporters,

Introduced in 1976, the US Government`s move to help developing economies by providing import duty concessions to a number of products under Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) programme have been benefitting Indian exporters. At present, India`s total exports of goods to US under this scheme amounts to US$ 5.6 billion. However, future of these exports have come at a stake after the recent statement from the US president showing his intention to withdraw the GSP benefit for India as the later has failed to assure US the desired access to its markets. Although, the Indian government assured of not having any significant adverse impact of such withdrawal on India`s exports to US as the GSP benefit amounted to only US$ 190 million, the MSME sector is likely to face the heat.

The products exported from India under GSP programme are mostly manufactured by Indian MSMEs and US is the largest destination for Indian engineering exports. Indian exports to US have also dropped in recent months. Therefore, these MSME units are largely dependent on US for selling their products and exporting without any duty concessions will make them uncompetitive in the US market. While the Indian engineering exports are already faltering because of high input cost, delay in GST refund and lack of finance for MSMEs among others, withdrawal of such a benefit might have a ripple effect on Indian engineering MSMEs.

The Trade Representative`s Office of the US said that removal of benefit under GSP would be effective after 60 days of notification to the US Congress as well as to the Indian government and the notification is not yet published. Meanwhile, the Indian government is likely to sort out this issue through bilateral dialogues and to seek two more months for withdrawal of GSP benefits.

EEPC India, with over 60 percent of its members from the MSME sector, is seriously concerned about the impact of such a move on our MSMEs and has already urged the Indian government to negotiate with its US counterpart so that the benefits under GSP continues for India and engineering export to US can be restored.

FTA: Peru and India complete fourth round of negotiation for trade agreement (El Comercio: 15/03/2019)

The head of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur), Edgar Vásquez, announced today the culmination of the fourth round of negotiations between Peru and India. The meetings were held in the city of Lima, between March 11 and 15, where various topics were discussed, such as: market access (tariffs), customs matters, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, technical barriers of trade, trade of services, investment, and movement of people, among others. "This round has been quite fruitful and has allowed substantial progress in the chapters of Technical Obstacles, Sanitary Measures and Customs Matters, which is an important signal that both countries remain committed to achieve this commercial agreement", he said.

Adex: There are 270 untapped opportunities in India for US $ 2.273 billion (Gestion : 10/03/2019)

Peru must take safe and accelerated steps towards its competitiveness to take advantage of the potential of a future trade agreement with India, said the president of the Association of Exporters (Adex), Juan Varilias Velásquez. According to the Center for Research in Economics and Global Businesses of the guild, there are 270 untapped opportunities in India for US $ 2.273 billion, which include products of agro-industry (61), chemicals (49), metalworking (29), steel (24), clothing (23), textiles (15), fishing (11), non-metallic mining (10), wood (5), traditional agriculture (3) and others (30) he said. On the other hand, the commercial advisor of Peru at OCEX New Delhi (India), Luis Miguel Cabello commented that "The population of India can be an advantage, but buyers should be evaluated, with a good market research and getting to know them closely with visits and fairs and missions, you can locate the appropriate niches and get optimal negotiations for the benefit of Peruvian companies and Indian buyers".

Venezuela

Potential products of exports for India :

Pharmaceutical products - Venezuelan pharmaceutical industry is severely affected by the lack of private investment and relies heavily on the imports for drugs and pharmaceuticals. India is one of the leading manufacturers and exporters of pharmaceuticals in the world and enjoys acceptance in the Venezuelan market due to its quality and competitive prices.

Auto-parts - India is one of the top manufacturers of auto-parts in the world. Venezuela is in dire need of auto-parts for all kinds of vehicles.

Oil and gas machinery and spare parts - Venezuela is in dire need of oil and gas industry machinery and spare parts to reactivate their oil industry. The Venezuelan oil industry uses machinery and parts which are US standards compliant, and India manufactures such items compliant with US standards at lower rates.

India – Venezuela relations:

Venezuela hopes to strengthen oil exchange with India: The Venezuelan Petroleum Minister and President of Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA) during his visit to the 13th edition of Petrotech Conference exhibition held in New Delhi, India, from 10-12 February 2019, said that “Venezuela will deepen its economic and oil relations with India in favour of the development of peoples”. “We will go on with our talks with private and public companies from India, aiming to strengthen and increase our trade exchange” he said. Minister Quevedo said that he held various work meetings during the workshop with his counterpart from India, Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan, in order to review the functioning of Petrocarabobo and Indovenezolana joint ventures, as well as with representatives from hydrocarbon public and private sectors. Mr. Quevedo pointed out that “the situation of crude oil supply to India was discussed, as we want to double that supply, as well as the purchase of products for the Venezuelan market”. Also, Mr. Augusto Montiel, Venezuelan Ambassador in India, stressed the importance of the comprehensive relations between both nations, which include energy, trade and cultural fields. Mr. Montiel said that bilateral relations are based on respect to international law, a multi-polar world building and a complementary perspective of two sister nations. The Minister hoped to convince refiners, including Reliance Industries Ltd and Nayara Energy Ltd, to double their oil purchases. According to the Minister, Venezuela is open to barter arrangements with India using oil as payment. India’s Reliance is among PDVSA’s main cash customers, while Nayara receives Venezuelan oil via its stakeholder, Russia’s Rosneft, the news report says.

U.S. presses India to stop buying oil from Venezuela: According to media reports, the United States Government is pressing India to stop buying oil from Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s government. “We say you should not be helping this regime. You should be on the side of the Venezuelan people,” Special US Envoy, Elliott Abrams said in an interview. The Trump administration has given the same message to other governments, Abrams said, and has made a similar argument to foreign banks and companies doing business with Maduro. Abrams described the U.S. approach as “arguing, cajoling, urging.” The report indicates that the Indian market is crucial for Venezuela’s economy because it has historically been the second-largest cash-paying customer for Venezuela’s crude, behind the United States. Asked whether India had agreed to stop buying oil from Maduro’s government, Abrams said: “I don’t want to characterize the discussions, which continue.” The report further mentions that India is also being pressured by lawmakers from both major U.S. parties. Republican Senator Marco Rubio tweeted on 13 February 2019 that Indian refiner Reliance Petroleum’s purchases of Venezuelan oil would undermine Guaido’s “legitimate government” and “lead to calls for secondary sanctions on Reliance.” Albio Sires, chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives’ subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, wrote to India’s ambassador in Washington on 12 February 2019 expressing concern about what Sires called Venezuela’s “attempts to work around U.S. efforts to hold Maduro accountable and approach one of our strongest partners in the process.”

India`s Reliance Caps Venezuelan Oil Buying on U.S. Pressure: According to media reports, Reliance Industries Ltd., has capped oil purchases from Venezuela and halted selling diluent following U.S. sanctions against President Nicolas Maduro’s government. “Our U.S. subsidiary has completely stopped all business with Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, PDVSA, and its global parent has not increased crude purchases," a Reliance spokesman said in a statement emailed to the media. “In addition, since sanctions were imposed and contrary to some news reports, Reliance has halted all supply of diluent to PDVSA and will not resume such sales until sanctions are lifted." Reliance, with a capacity of 1.36 million barrels a day, imported about 270,000 barrels a day, or roughly 80% of India’s total oil imports from Venezuela in 2018, according to the reports. India replaced U.S. to become the biggest buyer of Venezuelan oil in February 2019, roughly one month after the U.S. imposed new sanctions, the report mentioned. Reliance Industries and Nayara Energy Ltd. are the primary buyers of Venezuela oil, because their advanced refining systems can process the thick Venezuelan grade into high-value fuels such as gasoline, low-sulfur diesel and jet fuel. “Since the U.S. government imposed sanctions on the Government of Venezuela in late January 2019, Reliance Industries Limited has been in close contact with representatives from the U.S. State Department to ensure full compliance," according to the statement. "We will continue a constructive dialogue with the U.S. government to ensure Reliance remains in compliance.” Reliance used to conduct business with Venezuela via its U.S. unit, but moved all transactions to its trading desk in India after the January 2019 sanctions.
