FREE TRADE AGREE­MENT WITH SRI LANKA

The Min­istry of Tex­tiles, Govt of In­dia re­quested the As­so­ci­a­tion for its views on Sri Lanka’s Re­quest for Re­mov­ing the Quota or In­creas­ing TRQ from the ex­ist­ing Eight Mil­lion Pieces un­der the Bi­lat­eral Trade Agree­ment with Sri Lanka. The As­so­ci­a­tion has sent its View to the Min­istry of Tex­tiles, Govt of In­dia, which are as un­der: 1. The Do­mes­tic Ap­parel In­dus­try is go­ing through a slug­gish phase post De­mon­eti­sa­tion and the In­tro­duc­tion of GST and in­creas­ing in TRQ would dampen the spir­its of the SME Man­u­fac­tur­ers. It would also con­tra­dict the ‘Make in In­dia’ Story of our Hon’ble Prime Min­is­ter, Shri Naren­dra Modi. Hence, we would not rec­om­mend and in­crease in the TRQ at the present mo­ment. 2. How­ever, in case the Govern­ment of In­dia de­cides to in­crease the TRQ for Sri Lanka, we strongly feel that the In­crease should only be to­ken in na­ture and up to Two Mil­lion Pieces (from Eight Mil­lion Pieces to Ten Mil­lion Pieces) and not more than Three Mil­lion Pieces in One Cat­e­gory. 3. We strongly urge the Govern­ment to also in­clude the ‘Fab­ric For­ward’ Pol­icy in the FTA with Sri Lanka.
