International trade in india ppt

  2. 2.  International trade is exchange of capital, goods, and services across international borders or territories. In most countries, it represents a significant share of gross domestic product (GDP). While international trade has been present throughout much of history (see Silk Road, Amber Road), its economic, social, and political importance has been on the rise in recent centuries.
  3. 3. Importance of InternationalTrade  Without international trade, nations would be limited to the goods and services produced within their own borders.  International trade is the backbone of our modern, commercial world, as producers in various nations try to profit from an expanded market, rather than be limited to selling within their own borders. There are many reasons that trade across national borders occurs, including lower production costs in one region versus another, specialized industries, lack or surplus of natural resources and consumer tastes.
  4. 4. Risks in international trade  Buyer insolvency (purchaser cannot pay);  Non-acceptance (buyer rejects goods as different from the agreed upon specifications);  Credit risk (allowing the buyer to take possession of goods prior to payment);  Regulatory risk (e.g., a change in rules that prevents the transaction);  Intervention (governmental action to prevent a transaction being completed);  Political risk (change in leadership interfering with transactions or prices); and  War and other uncontrollable events. In addition, international trade also faces the risk of unfavorable exchange rate movements
  5. 5. Trade and commerce have been the backbone of the Indian economy right from ancient times. Textiles and spices were the first products to be exported by India. The Indian trade scenario evolved gradually after the country’s independence in 1947. From the 1950s to the late 1980s, the country followed socialist policies, resulting in protectionism and heavy regulations on foreign companies conducting trade with India.
  6. 6. India’s major imports comprise of crude oil machinery, military products, fertilizers, chemicals, gems, antiques and artworks. Imported goods are divided into the following categories:  Freely importable items: For these items, no import license is required. They can be freely imported by an individual or a firm.  Canalized items: These items can only be imported by public sector firms. For example petroleum products fall under this category.  Prohibited items: Items such as unprocessed ivory, animal rennet and tallow fat cannot be exported to India.
