My dear fellow exporters,

The Bull Run in Indian engineering exports continued in the new fiscal and during August 2018, it recorded highest monthly growth of this fiscal at 21.2 percent over the same month last fiscal. Overseas shipment of engineering products from India almost reached US$ 7 billion during the month. Another reason for the engineering exporting community to cheer was that the share of engineering in overall merchandise trade once again increased to 25 percent. In this regard, it was noteworthy that this acceleration in growth came despite of having a number of logjams to trade both in domestic as well as global front.

This month, the high year-on-year growth was attributed to sizeable growth in exports of Electrical Machinery, Aluminium and products, Air conditions and Refrigerators, Railway Transport and Industrial Machinery for Boilers, Parts etc. among others. Exports of Copper and Copper Products declined drastically over the same month last year while that of Aircrafts and Spacecraft was also dismal. Destination-wise break up however did not see any change in composition as EU topped the list followed by North America and ASEAN+2.

The bottlenecks to foreign trade did not wane off especially on the external front. On the contrary, clubbing of EU and 11 other nations with the US in its complaint to WTO against the validity of India`s Export Promotion Schemes brought further headache to our policymakers. Global tension on trade war still remained while continuation of GSP benefit to India by developed nations was uncertain. Back home, concern on dearer raw material persisted but complications on GST diluted to a large extent.

Tata Steel lowers sales estimate on slim state project spending
Bangkok Post 29.08.2018

SET-listed Tata Steel Thailand Plc (TSTH), the local unit of India`s largest steelmaker, is conservative about sales volumes for its 2019 fiscal year, which began in April, projecting slight growth to 1.24-1.25 million tonnes after witnessing overall rebar volume in the country shrinking during January to June. Tata`s projection is down from the 1.32-1.35 million tonnes projected earlier. The company`s related rebar products represent roughly 55% of all steel products sold in the domestic market. Thailand`s rebar sales volume dropped by 5.4% to 2.6 million tonnes in the first six months of 2018, said chief executive Rajiv Mangal. "Disbursement of the government`s budget did not meet the company`s expectations, particularly for the state`s megaprojects," he said. "Meanwhile, many long weekends and the early rainy season also reduced local rebar demand." The related rebar products are normally used for the construction sector.

`Russia plus`: India sets up dedicated cell to assist Russian investors

The initiative is a fruit of PM Modi`s commitment to set up a dedicated Russian desk to promote Russian investments in India and to open new vistas of bilateral economic engagement.  Russia Plus, which works within the remit of Invest India — the investment promotion and facilitation agency of the Indian government, is a one-stop solution for investors that provides handholding support, including business advisory, policy guidance, location assessment, assistance with regulatory approvals, issue redressal and expansion support. This cell will be the key to push Russian investments in India in non-traditional sectors, with Delhi and Moscow aiming to give economic hefts to the bilateral strategic partnership.

Areas that have been prioritized for Russian investments in India and JVs include agriculture, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, start-ups, capital goods (metallurgy), food processing and civil aviation. Other non-defense areas in which India is seeking Russian expertise include energy corridor deep-ocean technology to harness rare earth metals, shipbuilding, inland waterways, IT sector and harnessing natural resources in the Arctic region where Russia has ownership of 15 out of a total of 19 ports.

Russia and India consider possibility to resume "Chennai-Vladivostok" corridor

Russia and India seek to intensify the transport communication with each other and are considering the possibility of resuming the "Chennai – Vladivostok" corridor maritime, as per the Russian Trade Representative in India Yaroslav Tarasyuk.

“Complex logistics is one of the main constraints in the development of Russian-Indian trade. That is why the "North-South" transport corridor is so important. The corridor is to be launched in the nearest future. We are also looking for to other transport routes and are going to consider the possibility of resuming the work of the "Chennai-Vladivostok" corridor, which had been successfully functioning in the Soviet years,” the source said. "In addition, the issues of establishing the cargo aviation communication between Russia and India and expanding the geography of passenger air transportation are being discussed. According to the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, the passenger traffic between Russia and India grew by 72% last year, " Mr. Tarasyuk added.

Russian company delivers first LNG cargo to India

NOVATEK Gas and Power Asia Pte. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary, has shipped to the Indian market its first cargo with LNG produced by the Yamal LNG project. Novatek’s First Deputy Chairman of the Management Board Lev Feodosyev said that one of the company’s goals was the expansion of the supply geography and the growth of its presence in key Asian markets."The first cargo delivered to the growing Indian market is an important development step in this direction," Feodosyev added.

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 kind of Vehicles.

India – Venezuela relations

Venezuela will continue to sell oil to India: According to media reports, Venezuelan Ambassador in Delhi has said that the country’s plans are on to boost production at home and that oil trade with India will continue unabated despite U.S. sanctions. “Venezuela has been affected by U.S. sanctions. These are economic sanctions, aggression, against the people of Venezuela. As a result, production has come down. But we will continue our oil trade with India,” Ambassador Augusto Montiel said. Venezuela shipped 280,000 barrels per day (bpd) of heavy crude to India in the first half of the year, down from 355,500 bpd shipped in the corresponding period of last year. The Latin American country’s oil production averaged 1.58 million bpd in the first five months of 2018, its lowest annual level since 1985. “Oil is the world’s most wanted resource. And Venezuela has the world’s largest certified oil reserves. It also has huge coltan reserves. That’s why they are after Venezuela,” he said, referring to the U.S. sanctions. Mr. Montiel said India had assured Venezuela that it would not support unilateral sanctions. “With all our international associates, including India’s ONGC, we are planning to increase oil production,” said the diplomat. Regarding the economic crisis and hyperinflation, Mr. Montiel said Venezuela’s new cryptocurrency, Petro, will start circulating from August 20. Petro is pegged to the international price of oil. Asked if India would change to the cryptocurrency for trade, he said India is yet to accept the digital currency system, but “we don’t have any problem with India’s choice for the payment currency.” “The aggression against countries like Venezuela and Iran by the U.S. is hurting India as well... Multilateralism is in threat because of these sanctions,” said the Ambassador.
