Looking to replace Chinese imports, US turns to Indian products
NEW DELHI: Amid rising trade tensions, American importers of sports goods, toys, stationery, cables and electronics parts have reached out to Indian sellers of these goods as Chinese products become expensive due to the US-China trade war.
The US is looking to replace Chinese exports with Indian products in at least seven product lines including vulcanised rubber, footwear and kitchen accessories. “Importers in the US have shown keen interest in our products in at least seven tariff lines,” said an official in the know of the details. “We have a five-six month period to make use of this opportunity before Vietnam and Cambodia fill in the space vacated by China.”
