Australia China in Complete Shock of India Imports that are increasing .
South Australian trade minister visits with Indian states for tie-ups . Exports to China spike 39 per cent but trade deficit widens .
A 70-member Australian delegation led by Martin Hamilton-Smith, minister for trade and investment in the South Australian government, will meet with state governments in India negotiating and proposing tie-ups in water conservation, defence, technology in health care, premium food and wine in addition to art.
The first of such initiatives is likely to be a proposal for a centre of research on water conservation in Maharashtra, said Smith.
The delegation will also visit Rajasthan, New Delhi and Bangalore. The group includes representatives from companies such as Add-Life Techonlogies, which provides virtual reality platforms for solutions in the home, wine producer 1847 Wines Chateau Yaldara, Flight Training Adelaide and Hydro-dis that makes water disinfection techniques among other businesses.
Hamilton said that Australia and India do AUD21 billion worth of trade every year. However, he also said there are still a great deal of trade barriers “in terms of taxes, fees, duties”.
He added the two countries have been negotiating a free trade arrangement for some time, but that talks “have plateaued” that was “sad for companies” on either side.
NEW DELHI India and China might have been engaged in a verbal duel over border disputes for the past few months, but the country’s exports to the neighbouring nation have surged 39 percent during the first half of the current fiscal, amid signs that Beijing is more accommodating in addressing New Delhi’s long pending trade issues.
Latest data available with the commerce department revealed that exports have grown faster than the speed of import expansion with India’s largest trading partner, although the trade deficit has widened given the shipments of electronics and pharmaceuticals from across the border.
A large part of the export jump was driven by three sectors: iron ore ferro alloys, all raw material and inputs that feed into the manufacturing chain of China.
However, the government is looking to ensure that the iron ore does not flow out of the nation and those with reduced ferrous content gets loaded for ships that sail to ports, said sources. Sources said commerce and industry minister Suresh Prabhu has also flagged problems to induce on export of goods, many of which face restrictions.
The government is looking at easier rules for export of agricultural goods, including non-basmati rice, identified as an item of significant potential and the issue is being flagged.
Now, the government is planning to bridge the trade gap by imports that are assessing. Prabhu is looking to set up a task force under commerce secretary Rita Teaotia to rationalise the trade deficit with a sector-specific strategy, sources said.
It wants to put in place standards for a host of products to ensure that the unabated flow is originated while the government realises that it might not be possible to choke the flow of smartphones and other digital items from China.
Given the dependence on Indian pharmaceutical firms on raw material from China, the government is eager to initiate steps to get players to claw back into space. There has been any movement on this front as this has been discussed for years.
