My dear fellow exporters,

India`s engineering exports continued to decline for the third straight month in June of the new fiscal 2020-2021 exhibiting dismal y-o-y performance. This echoed the global trade performance which was also quite weak albeit due to the rapidly expanding pandemic-COVID-19 across the globe. The situation may worsen as the pandemic does not show any signs of subsiding in the near future. Almost all international organisations predicted a deep set recession for the global economy in 2020. As the world gradually comes into terms with the new post COVID normal, trade emerges as one of the most important factors to instill confidence in the global economy. 

Hon`ble Commerce and Industry Minister Mr. Piyush Goyal recently held a video conference with EPCs along with senior Government officials from the Ministry. The Minister lauded the exporting community and informed that figures of June 2020 revealed that merchandise export figures have touched 88 percent of June 2019. He added that the exporters have worked exceptionally hard to recover from the lockdown setback so quickly, and reach such levels. The hard work, self-confidence and determination have paid off. Mr. Goyal said that the performance also is an indicator that economic activity is truly making a revival.

EEPC India encouraged such interaction and on behalf of the fellow exporters, EEPC India further approached the Minister seeking intervention for restoration of  benefits for exporters  under the MEIS scheme , which has been recently stopped by the Revenue Dept. EEPC India requested the government to make necessary changes as it will have an extreme adverse impact on exporters’ ability to survive in these difficult conditions.

This is for your kind intervention.

 

Mahesh Desai 

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.
