INDIA - India to hike tariffs on U.S. Artemia imports
Tuesday, December 31, 2019
India has notified the World Trade Organisation (WTO) it will impose higher import tariffs on 30 U.S. goods, including Artemia, in retaliation for higher tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.
The United States is the largest exporter of Artemia to the Indian market.
It has been speculated in the local Indian press that repeated calls by US-based trade bodies to penalize Indian exports of lobsters may have been the reason behind brine shrimp finding its way into the list of tariff hikes.
The revised duties will come into force June 21.
