US-China war could boost Indian exports in 354 items

A study by the Commerce Ministry has concluded that India can boost exports in at least 354 items, ranging from capital goods to base metals as a result of the US-China trade war. The export enhancement for these products is expected to be worth billions of dollars. China has imposed extra duties in 774 tariff lines, and India can explore the potential in 151 items in particular. 

Of the 774 American tariff lines (items) on which China has imposed extra duties, India can ship out more and replace the US, especially in 151 items, the study suggests. Similarly, of the 531 tariff lines on which US has imposed duties, India can increase exports in 203 items, according to the study.
