My dear fellow exporters,

Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) is a proposed Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the ten member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam) and the six Asia-Pacific states with which ASEAN has existing free trade agreements (Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand).

So far, 24 rounds of talks have been concluded, apart from six minister-level meets. India has crucial differences on tariff reduction, market access and services trade norms, such as those on the free movement of trained professionals with other nations.

Our Prime Minister in his upcoming visit is likely to ask for more time to conclude the talks. Countries like Malaysia, Vietnam and Philippines have supported India’s stand seeking more time to conclude the pact. However other member countries are looking forward to early conclusion of the deal.   

While the ASEAN is keen to bring down the duties to zero for most of the tariff lines, India wants to be more conservative considering its sensitivity with China and long standing trade deficit. On behalf of EEPC India we are apprehensive that offensive approach in case of China can be detrimental for the Indian economy. This may cause unwanted surge in import from China which in turn will injure our domestic industry. Therefore the Government should take a cautious stand in negotiating RCEP especially with China.

HS Code : 85

Description : Electrical or Electronic Machinery and Equipment

Rationale : The total market size of electrical machinery in India is anticipated to reach US$ 100 billion by 2022 from US$ 24 billion in 2013. The electrical machinery sector consists of generation, transmission and distribution machinery. In order to become a global force, Indian machinery sector needs to understand these changes and evolve to serve the user industries with the next generation products through integration of equipment with information technology like autonomous haulage or unmanned vehicles quipped with GPS, CCTV cameras, inertial guidance systems, and leverage dispatch route planning and guidance software for functioning.

HS Code : 90

Description : Optical, Medical , Photographic, Scientific and, Technical Instrumentation

Rationale : One of the potential items of India’s exports to Canada must include Optical, Medical, Photographic, Scientific and Technical Instrumentation. US, China and Mexico are the top exporters of this HS 2 category. India is not in the top ten list. India has a competitive disadvantages in the Optical, Medical , Photographic, Scientific and Technical Instrumentation market, but it also represent key opportunities for India to improve its position in the global economy through focused innovations.

Significant Trends in Trade and Investment

Details of significant trends : Canada’s trade with India is nearly balanced, demonstrating that trade deficit is not necessarily a feature of Canada’s commercial activities in the region. India is the 10th largest market for Canadian Exports year to date. July was the first month that Canada charged retaliatory tariffs on imported American steel and aluminum and the second month of U.S. tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.

Analysis : There is a drop of 19.2% in the export figures from that of 2017. The total in 2017 was $2118 million however in 2018 the figure was $1711 million USD. The Top products of export from Canada to India are Mineral Fuels, Mineral Oils, Bituminous Substances and Mineral Waxes, Pearls, Precious Stones or Metals, Coins and Jewelry and Pulp of Wood and The Like; Waste and Scrap of Paper or Paperboard. These products+ continue to be the top export items for the last few years.

Details of significant trends : Overall Canadian global import in July 2018 was less due to fewer aircraft imports. India is the 11th largest market for Canadian Imports year to date.

Analysis : There is a growth of 26% in the imports from India. The total imports figure of 2017 was $1861 million however in 2018 the figure is $2352 million USD. The Top products of import from India are Motor Vehicles, Trailers, Bicycles, Motorcycles and Other Similar Vehicles, Articles of Iron or Steel, Nuclear Reactors, Boilers, Machinery and Mechanical Appliances, Pharmaceutical Products and Organic Chemicals (Including Vitamins, Alkaloids and Antibiotics).

Details of significant trends : With respect to top competitors of India’s top 5 exports to Canada, the US consistently features as a top 5 competitor in each of the five export categories. Mexico features in 4 categories followed by China, Japan & Germany in 3 categories and Taiwan in 2 categories. India faces very tough competition from these largest trading partners of Canada. Other competitors included South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Netherlands, Norway and Azerbaijan.

Analysis : Lower imports of aircraft and other transportation equipment and parts, and of metal ores and non-metallic minerals were partially offset by higher imports of energy products in July 2018.Exports of energy products increased 5.0% to $10.3 billion, the highest level since September 2014.

  • Exports to the United States grew 3.3% to $38.4 billion in July, mainly on higher crude oil prices.
  • Imports from the United States edged down 0.1% to $33.1 billion in July.

India becomes world’s sixth biggest economy, edging out France: World Bank

India has become the world’s sixth-biggest economy, pushing France into seventh place, according to updated World Bank figures for 2017. India’s gross domestic product (GDP) amounted to $2.597 trillion at the end of last year. India has doubled its GDP within a decade and is expected to power ahead as a key economic engine in Asia, even as China slows down. According to the International Monetary Fund, India is projected to generate growth of 7.4% this year and 7.8% in 2019, boosted by household spending and a tax reform. This compares to the world’s expected average growth of 3.9%

Indian investment in Tunisia (company wise and sector wise), and performance of existing Indian Subsidiaries / Joint Ventures/ Collaborations

India Tunisia Joint Venture TIFERT worth US$450 million was launched in 2006 in Tunisia for manufacturing Phosphoric Acid. Its production started in 2013. Two Indian companies Coromandel Fertilizers Ltd and the Gujarat State Fertilizers Ltd (GSFC) have 30% shares in the project. To improve production, Tunisian Government is taking several measures to remove hurdles in the smooth running of the plant and supply of rock phosphate to the plant.  

The bi-annual board meeting of Indian-Tunisian joint venture in phosphates, TIFERT was held in Tunis on 20-21 September.  MDs of two Indian JV partners– Gujarat State Fertilizers Corp (GSFC) and Coromandel International Ltd (CIL) attended the meeting. They also visited the TIFERT plant at Skhira (380Km), and along with Tunisian partners CPG and GCT, met their banks – IDB and EIB. While the six-monthly loan payment was paid as per schedule, the banks are insisting on a sovereign guarantee from the Tunisian government as the plant has not been performing at the desired capacity. 

Other Projects: Indian companies M/s KEC International Ltd and Jyoti Structures Ltd have a presence in Tunisia for erection of electric transmission lines. An assembly plant of Mahindra pickup trucks is established in Tunisia with a target to produce up to 2500 trucks per year. Indian Auto Company, Mahindra and Mahindra, provides the vehicles as knocked-down kits, to be assembled by the Tunisian company, with full technical support from the Indian company.  Mahindra has further diversified its product portfolio by introducing SUV class vehicles.  M/s TATA Motors commenced assembly of pick-up trucks with Tunisian companies ‘Le Moteur’ and ‘Icar’ in June 2015. TATA’s flagship Tunisian model Tata Xenon has been very popular as 2000 vehicles have been sold in short span of 2 years.  TATA is also exploring possibility to introduce small commercial and heavy vehicle.    

Analysis of Investment opportunities in Tunisia

Tunisian Government provides many incentives to promote foreign investment in Tunisia.  About 3353 foreign companies operate in Tunisia in diverse sectors. 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.
