Additional duty/ Safeguard duty

Woven fabrics and apparels of synthetic & cotton

Chapters: 51, 52, 54, 55, 61 & 62

24th March, 2011

22nd July, 2011

11% to 30%

In 2011 Turkey initiated investigations for levy of Safeguard Duties on all kinds of synthetic and non synthetic fabrics. After the issue of such an investigations raised by exporters of almost all countries, Turkey recommended additional duty (in lieu of Safeguard duties) on fabric of all types including synthetic and cotton.

 

Most of the exporting counties opposed the manner in which the investigations were carried out. Cornered by such arguments, Turkish Government has converted safeguard duties as additional duties.

 

  • imported Apparel & fabrics (covered by above antidumping duty) worth $ 9.6 Bn in year 2012. Among 12 products groups covered under the above Safeguard duty, following 5 product groups contributes for more than 80% of total imports.

 

There is no justification of such safeguard duty as Turkey is a leading exporter of the garments to the World. By increasing such additional duty, they are only making fabric which is the raw material for garments, more expensive for their own Industry.

 

It may be highlighted that Indian and Turkish Manmade and Cotton fabric Industry complements each other. While India is strong in production of grey fabric at competitive prices, Turkey is strong in processing and printing. This combination can create a very good ground for mutual co-operations & join ventures.

 

Thus, both the countries can have access to the strength of each other in boosting textile trade between the two countries.
