India makes a stumbling block to Chinese products, apple gets shot

Last month, apple officially announced the iPhone 12. However, the latest line of iPhones is facing customs delays in India. On November 25, two people familiar with the situation told Reuters that India intends to strictly control electronic products from China, starting with quality inspection standards for imported goods. The newer company assembles most of the machines in China, although the newer ones are also assembled in China. This means that the iPhone 12, made in China, is the first to suffer. < p > < p > according to Reuters, standards India used to audit imported electronic products for about 15 days, but now some applications need to be reviewed for two months or more. < / P > < p > according to the BIS website, 1080 applications for laptops, tablets and other electronic devices submitted to the agency as of November 25 were pending, of which 669 had been waiting for more than 20 days, and some had been waiting for approval since September. Two people familiar with the situation told Reuters that the Indian government’s move was to strictly control electronic products from China, but it affected the import of Apple’s new iPhone, resulting in a delay in customs clearance of the newly released iPhone 12 last month. At present, apple India executives are calling on the Indian Bureau of standards to speed up the approval process and guarantee that the company will continue to expand its assembly business in India. Although Apple has an assembly business in India, the newer models and the iPhone 12 are imported from China, and most of Apple’s devices are made by Chinese manufacturers, Reuters said. It is not clear how long the iPhone was delayed in customs clearance, and apple did not respond to a request for comment from Reuters. According to Reuters, Chinese companies such as Xiaomi, oppo and Hikvision were also affected. In addition, South Korea’s Samsung also faces similar import barriers. None of the companies responded to requests for comment. Since the border conflict between China and India, the Indian government has taken the opportunity to hype “China threat”: 59 Chinese mobile phone applications have been banned, “black box operation” has been used to seize Chinese containers, and investment proposals of Chinese enterprises have been reviewed In the field of economy and trade, we have been making small moves against China. < / P > < p > after a pause for a while, India started again on Chinese mobile phone software. On November 24, the Indian government banned 43 mobile phone apps, most of them from China, citing “endangering national security.”. According to the analysis of Reuters, the Indian government has frequently suppressed Chinese enterprises and investment for two reasons: first, since the border conflict between China and India this year, the nationalist sentiment in India has been on the rise, and many Indian traders and nationalist organizations have called for boycott of Chinese products; second, since prime Minister modi came to power, he has been trying to promote the “self-reliance” policy and localized production. < / P > < p > a source said: “at the same time that the Indian Bureau of standards is delaying the customs clearance audit of some electronic products, the Ministry of electronics and information technology of India is promoting foreign enterprises to produce these products in India.” < / P > < p > think well, but not necessarily well. Hong Kong reported on November 22 that the progress of prime minister modi’s attempt to make the country “self reliant” seems not very good. Since the launch of this “movement” in May, India’s import trade from China has actually increased. Not only is China still India’s largest trading partner and source of imports, but China’s share of India’s total imports has risen from 13.7% in the previous fiscal year to 18.3% in the past six months to September, according to the latest government data. On November 25, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said that since June this year, India has banned mobile applications with Chinese background on the pretext of maintaining national security for four consecutive times. The relevant practices obviously violate the market principles and WTO rules, and seriously damage the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises. China firmly opposes this. The Chinese government has always asked Chinese enterprises to carry out foreign cooperation on the basis of complying with international rules and local laws and regulations. The Indian government is responsible for safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests of international investors, including Chinese enterprises, in accordance with market principles. The essence of China India Economic and trade cooperation is mutual benefit and win-win. India should immediately correct this discriminatory practice to avoid causing greater harm to bilateral cooperation.
