美國貿易再受重創:印度向美產品增稅!最高達70%

昨天宣布增稅,今天就生效。

印度主流媒體Times of India報道,印度昨天宣布對28種美國產品增稅:

India on Saturday announced a hike in customs duties on as many as 28 US products, including almond, pulses and walnut, in response to higher tariffs imposed by Washington on Indian products like steel and aluminium.

周六,印度宣布對包括杏仁、豆類和核桃在內的28種美國產品提高關稅,以反擊美國政府之前對印度鋼鐵和鋁等產品增收關稅。

The increased customs duties will come into effect from Sunday, an official notification said. The move will hurt American exporters of these 28 items as they will have to pay higher duties, making those items costlier in the Indian market.

官方通知稱,上調的關稅將從周日起生效。此舉將損害美國這28種商品出口商的利益,因為他們將不得不支付更高的關稅,從而使這些商品在印度市場上價格更貴(競爭力更低)。

增稅之後,美國這些產品進入印度市場要被收多高的關稅呢?

美媒CNN舉了個例子:蘋果,關稅將高達70%。

CNN驚呼:這對脆弱的全球貿易又是一次打擊!

India just increased tariffs on US exports, dealing another blow to fragile global trade.

印度剛剛提高了對美國出口商品的關稅,這對脆弱的全球貿易造成了又一次打擊。

The tariffs on several US products will go into effect on June 16, India's Finance Ministry said in a statement Saturday. The goods targeted include American apples — which will be hit with a 70% tariff — as well as almonds, lentils and several chemical products.

周六,印度財政部在一份聲明中表示,對美國幾種產品徵收的關稅將於6月16日(周日)生效。增稅的商品包括蘋果——將被徵收70%的關稅——以及杏仁、扁豆和幾種化學產品。

雖然,印度官方這次沒有直接提及增稅涉及的美國商品總價值是多少,但他們此前曾向世貿組織表過態:受影響的美國商品約2.41億美元。("The Indian government did not specify the value of the goods targeted in its statement, but previously told the World Trade Organization that they were worth around $241 million." - CNN)

CNN連線節目中的嘉賓,談及印度這次增稅愁眉不展

不過,美媒似乎也沒有忘記,印度這次增稅並非無中生有。它只不過是對美國之前的打壓做個「還擊」罷了……

India first announced plans to impose new tariffs a year ago in retaliation for increased US import duties on Indian steel and aluminum. But it repeatedly delayed imposing them while the two sides held a series of trade talks.

早在一年前,印度就首次宣布過計劃對美國商品徵收新的關稅,以報復美國提高對印度鋼鐵和鋁的進口關稅。不過雙方之後進行了一系列貿易談判,使得印度的增稅一再推遲。

The two countries exchange goods and services worth about $142 billion a year, but the relationship has soured in recent weeks after the Trump administration ended India's participation in a preferential trade program earlier this month.

印度和美國每年的商品和服務貿易價值約1420億美元。在特朗普政府本月初終止印度參與一項優惠貿易計劃後,兩國關係在近幾周惡化。

到這裡相信大家都看明白了,這次針對美國產品的增稅,又雙叒叕是特朗普政府自己「作」出來的。

印度乾得漂亮!

@Rajendr53280597:

American Gov. Should now understand "every action has equal and opposite reaction".

美國政府應該明白什麼叫「以眼還眼,以牙還牙!」

不過呢,還有人為印度「擔憂」了一把……

@chapie0:

結果,馬上有網友來打臉:你多慮了。

@saptak__mondal:
