My dear fellow exporters,

In a bid to give some relief to the exporting community, the GST Council in its 22nd meeting on 6th October 2017, announced few measures after wide ranging discussions with major Export Promotion Councils including EEPC India.

For the merchant exporters, the council fixed a tax rate of 0.1 per cent on goods procured for export purposes. The merchant exporters would also be allowed to obtain refund of 0.1 per cent tax paid on export of goods.

Immediate relief is being given by extending the advance authorization (AA)/ Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG)/100 per cent EOU schemes to sourcing inputs from abroad as well as domestic suppliers. The holders of AA/ EPCG and EOUs would not have to pay IGST and cess on imports. Also, domestic supplies to holders of AA / EPCG and EOUs would be treated as deemed exports...and refund of tax paid on such supplies would be given to the supplier.

To restore the lost incentive on sale of duty credit scrips, the council had reduced the GST on sale-purchase of these scrips from 5% to 0%.

From April 1, attempt would be made to launch an e-wallet facility for exporters to provide liquidity. For the functioning of e-wallet facility, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) will prepare norms.

On behalf of EEPC India, We are hopeful that these measures would provide some relief to the exporters and enhance export competitiveness of India.

Indian merchandise Exports to Australia 11 % increase, whereas the Australian export increased by 101 % for the same period. Refined Petroleum, Medicaments, Pearls & precious stones, Made up textile articles, railway vehicles and organo-inorganic compounds were dominant commodities of export from India to Australia, in that order. A notable increase in Indian export during Jan-July 2017 is Railway vehicles, attributed to the supply of “Made in India” metro train coaches to Australia at USD 65 m with the growth of 170 % over the corresponding period in 2016. Another noteworthy increase of exports from India to Australia is Organo inorganic compounds, which increased 94 % in Jan-July 2017 (value USD 62 m) over the corresponding period last year.

Export of ‘Coal’ from Australia to India was the main contributor for the increase in bilateral trade between the countries for the period Jan-July 2017 compared to the corresponding period in 2016. With the export of coal to India witnessing 102 % increase during Jan-July 2017 compared to the corresponding period in 2016, it pushed the overall bilateral trade by 71 %. In value terms, the total trade increased from USD 5.5 to USD 9.4 b between Jan-Jul 2016 and Jan-Jul 2017. It may be noted that out of USD 9.4 b overall bilateral trade between India and Australia, the export of coal alone, from Australia to India, contributed USD 4.2 b during the reporting period (i.e 45 % of total trade).

Products with Export Potential for India

Comparative advantage vis-à-vis peers in terms of manufacturing costs, market knowledge, technology and creativity has been a driving force for engineering exports from India. Engineering exports from India stood at US$ 65.23 billion in FY 2016-17. The export of engineering goods grew by 11.33 per cent year-on-year. Top ten importers of Indian engineering products during FY 2016-17 were US (US$ 7.06 billion), UAE (US$ 4.03 billion), Singapore (US$ 2.80 billion), UK (US$ 2.48 billion), Mexico (US$ 2.45 billion), Malaysia (US$ 2.39 billion), Germany (US$ 2.21 billion), Nepal (US$ 2.16 billion), Italy (US$ 2.08 billion) and Bangladesh (US$ 1.99 billion). The EU, ASEAN+2 and North America recorded the highest shipment of engineering products from India, with a share of 21 per cent, 16 per cent and 15 per cent respectively in total engineering exports in FY 2016-17. Capacity creation in sectors like infrastructure, power, mining, oil & gas, refinery steel, automotives, and consumer durables has been driving demand in the engineering sector. Separately, the approval of significant number of special economic zones (SEZs) across the country and the development of the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) across seven States is expected to further bolster the engineering sector.

Significant Trends in Trade and Investment

Details of significant trends

Analysis

Canadian exports to India have grown nearly 50% as compared to the corresponding period in 2016, while imports from India have only grown 9%. Exports of agricultural products (Edible Vegetables and Certain Roots and Tubers, Fertilizers) to India have enjoyed a significant leap, and make up the largest share of exports. Due to Alberta’s oil sands, mineral fuels are the 2nd largest export and witnessed the second highest growth rate. Mineral fuels are also Canada’s largest export to the world. Aircrafts and Spacecrafts showed the 3rd highest growth rate, leading this group to be the 9th biggest export to India. On the other hand, Pearls and Jewelry experienced the biggest drop in exports as compared to the corresponding period with an 8% decline. Ores, Slag and Ash, continued their decline from the previous month (-54.29%) with another decline of 7%. In terms of imports from India, Nuclear Reactors, Boilers, Machinery and Mechanical Appliances, continued their decline from the Jan-May period to decline an additional 22% while Pharmaceutical Products had the largest increase of 21%.

Canada’s total trade balance with India has historically been very low, and the trend has been continuing this year. The total trade balance, including exports and imports, is less than 1% of Canada’s total global trade balance. This is despite the significant nearly 50% growth in exports over the past year. Canada’s exports to India have grown nearly sixfold over its imports from India from the corresponding period last year. By contrast, its growth in worldwide exports is only double that of the growth in its worldwide imports. Canada enjoys a trade surplus of $120 million with India, although India is only a minor trade partner of Canada. Overall, Canada has a trade deficit with the world, amounting to nearly $2 billion in the reporting period.
