    My dear fellow exporters,
    The Government announced the second round of stimulus on January 3, 2009 which
    contains a few measures for the exporters. This included among other restoring back the
    DEPB rates and extension of the DEPB scheme till December 31, 2009. Further Duty
    Drawback rate has been increased for bicycle and some agricultural hand tool items. Also
    Rs. 5,000 crores has been given to Exim Bank to provide for export credit both in Rupee
    and Dollar terms for the benefit of exporters.
    However, the most important measure has been setting up of a Committee under the Finance
    Secretary comprising of the Revenue Secretary and the Commerce Secretary to look at
    the procedural problems being faced by the exporters. EEPC INDIA will be taking up a list
    of measures before the Committee so that these can be considered by Committee in the
    next package by the Government.
    With respect to the export data that has come out, it is very clear that it could be very difficult
    of India to meet the export target of US$ 200 billion this year. Engineering exports may
    weather through this year but is likely to face a very difficult fiscal year next year i.e. 2009-10.
    It is, therefore, important that the Government comes out with further measures to support
    the exporting community particularly the engineering exporting community. While Reserve
    Bank of India has slashed the CRR and Repo rates, the Government needs to understand
    that Indian companies are in a global environment where the credit rates are as low as zero.
    We do hope, therefore, the Government will take all possible steps to support the engineering
    export growth.
    Yours sincerely,




    (AMAN CHADHA)

                     INDO-LAC REVERSE BUYER SELLER MEET - 2009
Preamble
Latin America is said to be the second fastest growing region in the world. In the recent past, exports from India have been
growing at the fastest rate for the Latin American destinations. Exports of engineering goods and services from India to this
destination have been to the tune of US$ 1.15 billion in 2007-08.
Keeping in view the growing trade prospects in Latin American countries and genuine interest on the part of the above buyers
to further engage with Indian exporters of engineering goods, the Council has decided to hold a Buyer Seller Meet between
Indian exporters and importers of above countries in February 2009 at New Delhi and Ahmedabad. For this Buyer Seller
Meet the Council is expected to receive 10 buyers each from Latin American countries.
Objectives
     1. To provide an opportunity to prospective importers in LAC region and European countries to interact with Indian
        counterparts about their requirements.
     2. To provide an opportunity to Indian exporters to adjudge the acceptability of their products in the above markets, so
        that they are in a position to plan their strategy accordingly.
Depending on your choices, meetings will be fixed with foreign counterparts. Each exporter will be provided with minimum of
3 meetings. Each meeting will be of 20 to 30 minutes duration. Final match making will be done keeping in view the areas of
matching interest of both sides and choices thereof. Council will, thereafter draw up time schedule for interaction between
overseas delegates and Indian participants. Meeting schedule of each Indian Company will be forwarded to them in advance.
The participation fee (for one centre only) has been fixed as follows :
     Rs. 10,000/- for 1st participant of a firm

                  INDO-ASEAN REVERSE BUYER SELLER MEET - 2009
Preamble
India’s trade with the ASEAN Region dates back to time immemorial. The Region is one of India’s major trading partners.
India’s exports to ASEAN Region have grown from US$ 4.62 billion in 2002-03 to US$ 12.61 billion in 2006-07. In the
engineering sector India’s exports have grown from US$ 2.99 billion in 2006-07 to US$ 4.33 billion in 2007-08 showing a
growth of 45%. This shows that still much potential exists there. It will therefore, be a right time for Indian engineering
industry to showcase their capabilities in order to get a substantial share of the ASEAN market.
Keeping in view the growing trade prospects in ASEAN Region and the genuine interest on the part of the above buyers to
further engage with Indian exporters of engineering goods, the Council has decided to hold a Buyer Seller Meet between
Indian exporters and importers of ASEAN Region, in February 2009 at Chennai and Kolkata. For this Buyer Seller Meet, the
Council is expected to receive 15 buyers from ASEAN Region.
Objectives
    1. To provide an opportunity to prospective importers in ASEAN countries to interact with Indian counterparts about their
       requirements.
    2. To provide an opportunity to Indian exporters to adjudge the acceptability of their products in the ASEAN markets, so
       that they are in a position to plan their strategy accordingly.
Depending on your choices, meetings will be fixed with foreign counterparts. Each exporter will be provided with minimum
of 3 meetings. Each meeting will be of 20 to 30 minutes duration. Final match making will be done keeping in view the areas
of matching interest of both sides and choices thereof. Council will, thereafter draw up time schedule for interaction
between overseas delegates and Indian participants. Meeting schedule of each Indian Company will be forwarded to them
in advance.
The participation fee (for one centre only) has been fixed as follows :
       Rs. 10,000/- for 1st participant of a firm

                         INDO-CIS REVERSE BUYER SELLER MEET - 2009
Preamble
The CIS Countries have been trade partners of India for centuries. The discovery of Oil opened a new era of Industrialization
of this region. The CIS markets are new markets for Indian engineering goods. India exported US$ 4.12 billion worth of
engineering goods to this region in 2007-08, which was up by over 64% compared to exports in 2006-07. However, it is far
below the potential.
Keeping in view the growing trade prospects in CIS Region and genuine interest on the part of the CIS buyers to further
engage with Indian exporters of engineering goods, the Council has decided to hold a Buyer Seller Meet between Indian
exporters and importers of CIS Region in February 2009 at Mumbai and Bangalore. For this Buyer Seller Meet the Council
is expected to receive 10 buyers from CIS Region.
Objectives
     1. To provide an opportunity to prospective importers in CIS Region to interact with Indian counterparts about their
        requirements.
     2. To provide an opportunity to Indian exporters to adjudge the acceptability of their products in the above markets, so
        that they are in a position to plan their strategy accordingly.
Depending on your choices, meetings will be fixed with foreign counterparts. Each exporter will be provided with minimum of
3 meetings. Each meeting will be of 20 to 30 minutes duration. Final match making will be done keeping in view the areas of
matching interest of both sides and choices thereof. Council will, thereafter draw up time schedule for interaction between
overseas delegates and Indian participants. Meeting schedule of each Indian Company will be forwarded to them in advance.
The participation fee (for one centre only) has been fixed as follows :
       Rs. 10,000/- for 1st participant of a firm
       Rs. 7,500/- for subsequent participants of the firm
The participation charges will partially cover the expenses on account of portfolio bag containing background papers and
profiles of overseas delegates and lunches on Conference days.

                INDO-US/CANADA REVERSE BUYER SELLER MEET - 2009
Preamble
United States continues to be our biggest trading partner. As per the latest data from DGCI&S, two-way trade between India
and US has crossed US$ 30.6 billion in 2006-07 registering a growth of 14.15% over preceding fiscal 2005-06. India’s
exports of engineering goods to the US in 2007-08 have gone up by 12% to over US$ 4.26 billion from US$ 3.8 billion in 2006-
07. Though a well-established market, the US still has much to offer to the Indian engineering exporters in terms of potential.
Canada is emerging as another potential market and also a gateway to the US. India exported US$ 195.45 million worth of
engineering goods and services to this country in 2006-07.
Keeping in view the growing trade prospects in US and Canada and the genuine interest on the part of the above buyers to
further engage with Indian exporters of engineering goods, the Council has decided to hold a Buyer Seller Meet between
Indian exporters and importers of US and Canada in February 2009 at New Delhi and Chennai. For this Buyer Seller Meet,

                       INDO-GULF REVERSE BUYER SELLER MEET - 2009
Preamble
INDIA shares a special relationship with the Arab region, both in terms of culture and trade. Arab countries, with a combined
GDP of US$ 1450 billion and a GDP growth of 20%, offer ample bilateral opportunities for India.
The Gulf Countries have been trade partners of India for centuries. The discovery of Oil opened a new era of Industrialization
of this region. The GULF markets are growing markets for Indian engineering goods. Export of engineering items to this
region during the period April-October 2008 stood at Rs. 72,519.46 crore compared with Rs. 66,679.50 crore during the same
period of the previous year, registering an overall growth of 8.76 per cent.
UAE holds special significance for us. UAE is India’s top trading partner in the whole of West Asia and North African region,
representing nearly 75% of India’s exports to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Indian exports to the UAE
account for approximately 6% of its global exports.
Keeping in view the growing trade prospects in GULF Region and genuine interest on the part of the GULF buyers to further
engage with Indian exporters of engineering goods, the Council has decided to hold a Buyer Seller Meet between Indian
exporters and importers of GULF Region in February 2009 at Mumbai and Bangalore. For this Buyer Seller Meet the Council
is expected to receive 10 buyers from GULF Region.
Objectives
     1. To provide an opportunity to prospective importers in GULF Region to interact with Indian counterparts about their
        requirements.
     2. To provide an opportunity to Indian exporters to adjudge the acceptability of their products in the above markets, so
        that they are in a position to plan their strategy accordingly.
Depending on your choices, meetings will be fixed with foreign counterparts. Each exporter will be provided with minimum of
3 meetings. Each meeting will be of 20 to 30 minutes duration. Final match making will be done keeping in view the areas of
matching interest of both sides and choices thereof. Council will, thereafter draw up time schedule for interaction between
overseas delegates and Indian participants. Meeting schedule of each Indian Company will be forwarded to them in advance.
The participation fee (for one centre only) has been fixed as follows :
       Rs. 10,000/- for 1st participant of a firm
       Rs. 7,500/- for subsequent participants of the firm
The participation charges will partially cover the expenses on account of portfolio bag containing background papers and
profiles of overseas delegates and lunches on Conference days.

                          EEPC INDIA Invites Participation for
                 Multi Product Trade Delegation to Japan, South Korea
                                and Singapore/Malaysia
                                          (30th March - 4th April, 2009)
EEPC INDIA is pleased to inform that a Multi-Product Trade Delegation will be visiting Japan, South Korea and Singapore/
Malaysia during the period 30th March – 4th April, 2009.
Japan’s Economy
The economy of Japan is the second largest economy in the world, after the United States, at around USD 4.5 trillion in
terms of nominal GDP and third after the United States and China when adjusted for purchasing power parity. Japan's
economy is highly efficient, highly diversified, and very competitive overall ranking approximately 18th of 111 countries.
India has a very good bilateral trade relationship with this East Asian economic giant. The value of bilateral trade of
engineering goods rose from USD 3221.63 Million in 2006-07 to USD 4654.89 Million in 2007-08 with a notable growth of 44
per cent. Indian engineering exports to Japan is showing an outstanding growth of 70 per cent during 2007-08 over the
previous year.
South Korea’s Economy
The economy of South Korea is the third-largest in Asia and the 13th-largest in the world by GDP (PPP) as of 2007. In the
aftermath of the Korean War, South Korea grew from a poor developing country to a wealthy developed country. From the
mid- to late- 20th century, it has enjoyed exponential economic growth, with one of the fastest growth rates in modern world
history. India and South Korea bilateral relations are on strong footing and poised for achieving greater heights in future.
The bilateral trade of engineering goods between these countries grew sharply in the last few years. The value of engineering
exports rose from USD 402.57 Million in 2006-07 to USD 630.76 Million in 2007-08 with a remarkable growth above 56 per
cent. The total value of bilateral trade of engineering products has increased from USD 1134.91 Million in 2006-07 to USD
1743.71 Million in 2007-08 with a growth of 53.64 per cent.
Singapore’s Economy
The economy in Singapore is based on a highly developed market that serves as main centre for business and trade in the
entire South East Asian region. Singapore, along with Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan, is considered as among the
Four Asian Tigers. In the world business scenario, Singapore is regarded as the most business-friendly economy. Singapore
port is the busiest port in the world in terms of tonnage shipped. One can easily find the presence of all most all big names
in the world of business and trade having their regional headquarters and even corporate offices in Singapore. Bilateral
trade of engineering goods between Singapore and India has grown by more than 60 per cent during 2007-08. The trade,
which stood at USD 2234.07 Million in 2006-07, has gone up to USD 3588.77 Million in 2007-08. Indian engineering exports
to Singapore have increased from USD 1110.55 Million in 2006-07 to USD 1460 Million in 2007-08 with a notable growth
above 30 per cent.
About Malaysia
Malaysia emerges as one of the most potential countries in the South East Asian Region immediately after Singapore and
Indonesia. India’s engineering exports achieved a growth of 6.08% during 2006-07 over the previous year. However, the
growth during April-December 2007 as compared to the same period for the earlier year is 97.02% which is very encouraging.
The recent trend in the export growth of engineering products and services to Malaysia could be a focal point to capitalize
on the opportunities existing over there.
Malaysia boasts one of South-East Asia's most vibrant economies, the fruit of decades of industrial growth and political
stability. Malaysia's economic prospects remain healthy, although it faces fierce competition from its neighbours, and from
China and India.

Tunisia gained its independence from France in 1956 and developed a socialist economy. President Zine al-Abidine Ben
Ali has undertaken gradual free-market economic reforms since the early 1990s, including privatization of state-owned
firms, simplification of the tax code, and more prudent fiscal restraint. The country’s diverse economy includes significant
agricultural, mining, energy, tourism, and manufacturing sectors. Tunisia’s 1998 association agreement with the European
Union, which has helped to create jobs and modernize the economy, was the first such agreement between the EU and
a Maghreb country. The economy has also benefited from expanded trade and tourism.

Trade Policy

Tunisia’s weighted average tariff rate was 9.1 percent in 2005. Import restrictions, some prohibitively high tariffs, import
taxes and fees, import licensing requirements, export promotion programs, and inconsistent customs administration add
to the cost of trade. An additional 10 percentage points is deducted from Tunisia’s trade freedom score to account for
non-tariff barriers.

Import Regulations and Customs Duties
Regulations
Although Tunisia has liberalised its import system within the framework of the WTO regulations, a certain number of
restrictions still exist. Thus, around 3% of the goods require an import license (agricultural, automobile, textile products)
delivered by Ministry of Trade. There are also some quotas, especially for consumer goods which compete with the local
industry.

In order to obtain these licenses, a certain number of documents are required such as a trade contract (or any other
equivalent document), as well as information relating to the contracting parties, products and origin of goods. In principle,
the licenses are valid for 12 months after the decision is delivered by the Ministry of Trade, which may nevertheless
reduce this duration for certain products (it can never be less than 2 months). The license can be used partially. It is
not transferable.

Customs Duties

Tunisia applies the Harmonised Customs Duty System. The customs duties are calculated on ad valorem basis in relation
to the CIF value of the goods. There is a general tariff from 10 to 230%. Agricultural products are often highly taxed,
except for goods originating from the Arab Maghreb Union (UMA). Some products originating from Europe (agreement
signed in 1995) can also benefit from reduced rates. Tunisia sometimes applies antidumping rights for which the tax
bases and reasons of enforcement are not clearly defined and can sometimes be considered as minimum prices for the
calculation of customs duties.

Regulations governing payments

The payment in advance for the goods is allowed by the Central Bank Tunisia, if coupled with a advance payement
guarantee.

Registration and licensing procedures

The setting up of a Private Limited Company or a Public Limited Company requires the preliminary delivery of a business’
card and the registration with the Trade Register. Formalities are rather flexible, in particular for public market companies.

Foreign exchange control

The exchange regime is now more flexible since the application of the law of May 3rd, 1993, modifying the 1st article
of the Code of Exchanges and the enforcement texts. In particular, this law has implemented free transfers related to
external payments of current transactions (profit, dividends and payment transfers generated in Tunisia) and to the net
proceeds of the sale or the liquidation of invested capital through currencies imports.

                                                                                                    Dated 19th December, 2008

              Sub : Procedure relating to sanction and pre-audit of refund claims - regarding
I am directed to invite your attention to Board’s Circular No. 24/2007-Cus dated 02.07.2007, relating to the procedure to
ensure expeditious disposal of Customs duty refund applications. Para 4.4 of the Circular provides for the audit system in
respect of refund claims. It has been provided under the said Para that all applications involving a refund of duty and/or
interest of Rs. 5 lakh or more shall be subjected to pre-audit as per the existing practice. However, It has been brought to the
notice of the Board that the said Para does not clearly state whether the pre audit of application of refund for amount Rs. 5
lakh and above should be done at the level of DC/AC or at the level of Commissioner.

2. The matter has been examined. It has been decided that pre-audit of all refund claims will be conducted by the Assistant/
Deputy Commissioner (Audit), in the Commissionerate Headquarters Office. Thereafter, the Assistant/Deputy Commissioner
of Group/Division will pass an order-in-original in respect of the claim. Thereafter, the orders-in-original passed in this regard
shall be subjected to review by the Commissioner concerned.

3. The relevant portions of Circular No. 24/2007-Cus dated 02.07.2007 stand amended as discussed above.

4. A suitable Public Notice and Standing Order may be issued for the guidance of the trade and staff. Difficulties faced, if
any, in implementation of the Circular may be brought to the notice of the Board at an early date.

                                                                                                            Sd/-

Circular No. 23/2008-Customs
                                                                                                    Dated 29th December, 2008

            Sub : Clarification on classification of combined refrigerator freezer with separate
                           external doors for the purpose of extending benefit of
                      Notification No. 85/2004-Customs dated 31.8.2004 - regarding
Your attention is invited to Notification No.85/2004-Customs dated 31.8.2004 wherein duty concessions have been extended
to certain specified goods when imported into the country from Thailand subject to the condition that such goods are of the
origin of Thailand in accordance with provisions of Interim Rules of Origin, published with the Notification No.101/2004-
Customs (N.T.) dated 31.8.2004.

2. In this regard, on an enquiry from the Board, some of the Customs field formations have reported that the ‘combined
refrigerator freezer fitted with separate external doors’ are being classified under the Tariff Item 8418 21 00 on the premise
that these goods are household type refrigerators. Accordingly, duty concession applicable on goods of Tariff Item 8418 21
00 under Sl.No.50 of the notification No.85/2004-Customs is also being extended to such imports from Thailand under
bilateral trade agreement. Certain other Customs field formations have also raised doubts about this classification and
sought a clarification from the Board.

3. The matter has been examined by the Board. For the purpose of classification of ‘Combined refrigerator freezer with
separate external doors’, it is stated that sub-heading 841810 covers refrigerators which are combined with freezers and
have separate doors, whereas, sub-heading 841821 covers only refrigerators without separate freezers and separate doors.
Further, sub-heading 8418 30 covers only “freezers”. Therefore, a ‘Combined refrigerator freezer with separate external
doors’ merits classification under sub heading 841810. This view is also supported by HS classification. Further, ‘Combined
refrigerator freezer with separate external doors of household type’ is appropriately classifiable under tariff item 8418 10 90,
as the other tariff entry at 8418 10 10 covers such refrigerators of commercial type only.

4. In view of the above, I am directed to clarify that the classification of ‘Combined refrigerator freezer with separate external
doors’ would be under sub-heading 8418 10 and not under 8418 21, as was being followed by certain Customs field formations.
Accordingly, these goods are not covered under Sl. No. 50 of the Notification No. 85/2004-Customs dated 31.8.2004.

5. Necessary action for review of classification and applicability of notification benefit in respect of past clearances may be
initiated so that differential duty, if any, could be recovered for the past period.

6. Difficulties, if any, faced in the implementation of these instructions, may be immediately brought to the notice of the
Board.
