Recently, in the union budget announced by the Indian Finance Minister, the basic customs duty of Indian raw silk (not thrown) was brought down from 30 percent to 5 percent.

The news is undoubtedly good news for China's domestic silk industry.

Cocoon and silk markets in Guangxi province reacted positively on March 1, a day after the announcement.

Most nearby contract prices touched 390,000 Yuan / ton, a sniff away from the psychological mark of 400,000 Yuan mark.

Most mid and forward contracts hit daily upper limit. Trade volume of raw silk March and September contract enlarged and open interest was restored.
