INDIA: Council Calls For Drop In Import Duties
The Apparel Export Promotion Council has joined with garment industry lobbyists in calling for the government to drop customs duties from 15 per cent to five per cent on the import of textile machinery.
Industry bodies are also calling for permission from government to import some fibres, yarns and fabrics that are not manufactured in India in order for them to reach the export target of $25bn by 2010.
