India’s border dispute with China continues. Meanwhile, the Chamber of Trade and Industry (CTI) has asked Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal to change the import of goods and e-commerce policy. The traders’ association has demanded to mention on each item which country it is from. Earlier, traders in Delhi have started protesting against Chinese products due to the clash between India and China in Tawang.
Protests demanding Boycott
According to the report of ANI, there have been protests in Delhi’s Connaught Place demanding Boycott of Chinese goods. CTI Chairman Brajesh Goyal said that it has been appealed that it should be made mandatory to write the country of origin on imported goods. He said that information is not available on many things right now. Especially, on e-commerce websites, customers do not know where the goods they are buying are manufactured.
Goyal also pointed out that when people do not even want to buy Chinese products, then they end up buying them. Because it is not given on them which country they are from. The official of the merchant organization said that if the name of the country of origin is not written on the products, then Indians can boycott Chinese goods. According to the report, therefore CTI has asked the central government to work on such a policy and make changes in the policy of e-commerce and imports.
Apart from this, Brajesh Goyal said that China earns money from Indian markets and is only misusing them against India. According to the report, he said that we have to break the economic back of China. According to him, in the first nine months of this year, the bilateral trade between India and China has crossed $103.63 billion. At the same time, the domestic trade deficit has increased to more than $75.69 billion. During this period, exports from China to India stood at $89.66 billion.
