印网友热议:印度提高29种美国商品关税 世界看中国-第1张

NEW DELHI:The government on Friday finally decided to impose additional customs duty on 29 products,including almonds,walnut and pulses,imported from the United States-a move which came nearly a year after India had decided to retaliate against Washington’s move to raise import duties on some steel and aluminium products.
The Union finance ministry will soon issue a notification to this effect.The increase in import duties will be effective from June 16.India’s move to impose retaliatory tariffs comes 10 days before foreign minister S Jaishankar is to meet US secretary of state Mike Pompeo,the first high-level interaction after the new Modi government took over.Official sources in Delhi said that the government had informed the US authorities about the decision to raise import duties.
The government had held off on imposing retaliatory tariffs in the hope that the two countries would negotiate a resolution.
Some other products on which duties will be hiked include some nuts,iron and steel products,apples,pears,flat rolled products of stainless steel,other alloy steel,tube and pipe fittings,and screws,bolts and rivets.

Like this the govt.should charge high custom duty on chinese products like pens,dols and other plastic items which will help people to prefer domestic products.No use of complaining that our products are inferior.People should think to develop the quality of our products.

Quality will not improve just by protectionism.Quality only improves when there is competition.

Only imposing high custom duty will not make much difference.Our government should encourage Indian indutries to compete in quality by which our product match their standards.We have qualified engineers who should be encouraged to manufacture world standard product so that we can export.

You cannot ignore US because your exports to US are more than double the imports.
So US has more leverage..

If trump had some brain he would have cornered china first.Once china bent the knee all others could have been pushed later and would have yielded immediately.Instead he has united them all against USA now.

US can change sides in an instant for their self interests.They are only using India to counter China.It'”s right time India should act strong instead of timid and retaliate like Turkey did.
US is not Russia who will be on our side all the time
