Nepali delegation visits Turkey to end yarn export hassles

Apr '18
A delegation from Nepal led by a senior official from the ministry of industry, commerce and supplies recently visited Turkey and provided supporting documents to Ankara to help wrap up the ongoing investigation into the former’s yarn export and resume its trade. The delegation comprised experts and representatives from the Nepal Yarn Producers’ Association.

Alleging that Nepal was exporting Chinese yarn, Turkey had suspended the generalised system of preferences (GSP) benefit on export of yarn from Nepal in January this year. It had cited a considerable growth in export from Nepal — around 190 per cent between 2011 and 2017 — without a reliable domestic production base as the reason for suspending the facility.

Data related to production units, production capacity of the spinning mills, employment generated by these factories and taxes filed by them were presented by Nepal to the directorate general of customs enforcement in Turkey, according to a Nepali newspaper report.

Nepal clarified that the factories were mostly running below capacity earlier as the country was facing crippling power shortage and labour unrest. As the demand for yarn rose, Nepali factories started increasing their production capacity and some of them have now doubled their capacity utilisation from 35-40 per cent earlier to 70-75 per cent.

India and Turkey are the major export destinations for Nepali yarn. Out of Nepal’s total annual yarn export worth around Rs 15 billion, yarn worth Rs 5 billion is exported to Turkey, according to yarn exporters.

There was no chance of circumvention as Nepali factories are still operating below full capacity, the Turkish Government authorities were told.

The Nepali delegation also invited the Turkish investigation team to visit the production units in their country to verify their data.

The Nepali team met Turkish importers of Nepali yarn in Istanbul and briefed them about its talks with the government officials. (DS)
