chairman

My dear fellow exporters,

Recently in 4th India-CLMV Business Conclave, the Commerce and Industry Minister said that the Government is willing to pursue its original plan to create manufacturing hubs in the CLMV countries (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam) to create regional value chains even after the new US administration has abandoned the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. 

India’s cabinet had already cleared a Rs 500 crore project development fund in August 2016 for exploring such opportunities in CLMV countries and facilitating private companies to establish presence in these four countries.

One critical reason is the availability of Generalized Scheme of Preferences (GSP) to the CLMV countries. Initially India’s target was to leverage both TPP as well as their GSP access. So, even without TPP, its strategy does not change.

On behalf of Indian engineering exporting community, we believe that such initiatives of Government of India will definitely generate investment led trade and in turn will boost India’s engineering exports.

 

Yours sincerely,


(Tarvinder Singh Bhasin)

LIBYA

Bilateral Trade

Exports by India to Libya during the period 2015-16 stood at US$ 122.58 million and India’s imports from Libya went down to US $ 8.86 million. Thus the trade  decreased substantially mainly because of civil strife in Libya and decrease in oil production due to militia fighting and perennial strikes.

                                                                                                                                      (Values in US $ Millions)

PERU

FTA with India

India is one of the most important emerging powers in the world, and will represent 15.1% of the world’s GDP by 2050. By signing a FTA, Peru would position itself as one of the first countries in the region to reach that level of trade integration.

Bilateral trade between both countries has grown at an average annual rate of 14.8%. From January to November 2016, Peruvian exports to India amounted USD 772.6 million, growing by 36.3%, a greater growth than the ones reached with China (12.2%) and the USA (20.1%). On the other hand, Peruvian imports from India totaled USD 736 million, 2.2% of total Peruvian imports from the world. Main imports are vehicles, laminated products, textiles and medicines.

The main benefit of the FTA between India and Peru will be the increase of investment flow and reduction or elimination of tariffs, since some products have to pay high tariff rates such as copper and gold (7.8%), coffee (56.3%), and grapes (30.8%).
