Free-trade pacts hamper India's efforts to curb China textile imports
News Type: Expo News
China is exporting textiles to India through Bangladesh to get around a tax increase on imports, undermining New Delhi's efforts to support local manufacturers, industry sources said.
Earlier this week, India doubled the import tax on more than 300 textile products to 20 percent, marking the second tax increase on textiles in as many months.
This is aimed at providing relief to the country's domestic textile industry, which has been hit by cheaper imports. India's total textile imports jumped by 16 percent to a record $7 billion in the fiscal year to March 2018. Of this, about $3 billion were from China.
