DGS to look into Chinese handicraft imports

04
Aug '09
The import of Chinese handicrafts is reaching frightening proportions harming the culture and heritage of the country; hence the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) has been advised by the government to approach the Directorate General of Safeguards (DGS) to investigate these imports.

For a preliminary investigation into these imports, the government asked the EPCH to present a case to Directorate General of Safeguards, said Minister of State for Textiles Mrs. Panabaaka Lakshmi.

She added that the EPCH sought a ban on import of Chinese handicrafts, for which it had made a request to the Commerce Ministry, as the Chinese imports are threatening the legacy of Indian culture and heritage.

To protect the domestic producers temporarily, the DGS recommends safeguard duty, which is a sort of safety-valve built in the World Trade Organisation (WTO) policy.

The handicraft sector of the country that employs about seven million people, losses more than 100,000 jobs on account of the import of Chinese handicrafts, the council had said previously. This import stood at Rs. 10.40 billion in 2007-08 against 7.92 billion in the year before that.
