China plans to increase quota for textile processing trade
Feb '13
The Chinese Ministry of Commerce is planning to increase quota for textile processing trade in order to improve the country’s textile and garment export situation.
Processing trade involves import of all or part of raw materials for processing and then re-exporting the finished goods.
Enterprises that get processing trade quotas in the textile industry can import cotton at zero-tariff, while other enterprises manufacturing for domestic market would have to apply for cotton imports under import quota, after they bag orders for export of goods.
For general or non-export oriented textile units, the number of export orders received by them becomes the key for getting processing trade quotas.
Chinese textile industry association expects the textile industry performance to remain steady in the fast-half of 2013 and pick up in the later part of the year.
According to the association, the international market still has several uncertain factors and its performance is not likely to significantly improve in 2013. However, the market would not deteriorate either and hence the Chinese textile exports may remain relatively stable in 2013.
As per the latest data from the General Administration of Customs, China’s textile and apparel exports registered US$ 24.691 billion in January 2013, a year-on-year growth of 14.74 percent.
