Indian companies ask government to restrict Chinese aluminium imports.

Subject: Indian companies ask government to restrict Chinese aluminium imports
Business Standard reported that in a presentation made by the Aluminium Association of India (AAI), the industry told the government that manufacturers were suffered owing to the impact of unfavourable Free Trade Agreements. Arguing that recent import duty hikes by the US may see huge amounts of Chinese aluminium scraps being dumped in India, manufacturers have asked the government to curb imports.

Recently, executives from companies, including Vedanta and Hindalco, met Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) Secretary Ramesh Abhishek to request that quantitative restrictions be placed on aluminium imports, which have shot up over the past two years, a commerce ministry official said.

In a presentation made by the Aluminium Association of India (AAI), which was reviewed by Business Standard, the industry told the government that manufacturers were suffered owing to the impact of unfavourable Free Trade Agreements (FTAs). They also sought anti-dumping duties for the majority of imports, but said aluminium should be exempted from the list of items that were currently being discussed for the proposed Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership agreement. Trade officials of 16 Asia-Pacific countries that form the grouping are set to start the next round of negotiations in Tokyo soon.

In its presentation, the AAI sought “the imposition of quantitative restrictions to the tune of 70 to 80 per cent of annual average imports of the last five years, i.e. 1250 kilotonnes per annum, to restrict increasing aluminium metal and scrap imports, in line with the US imposing imports quotas.” It also demanded that the industry is classified as core industry with benefits.

India’s aluminium imports rose in the last two years, and a majority of that came from nations, including Malaysia and South Korea, those with which India had trade pacts. Imports rose from $3.47 billion in 2016-17 to $4.52 billion in 2017-18 as global commodity prices saw an uptick. However, the largest component of this, aluminium scraps, mainly originated from China.
