Can India Afford To Boycott Chinese Products?

How India Has Ruined Pakistani Exports?

India removed the Most Favored Nation, MFN, status for Pakistan and slapped a staggering customs duty of 200% on Pakistani goods. India was successful in diverting various international flights from Pakistani airspace for a good duration of time. India was successful in cornering Pakistan from the rest of the world. Indian vendors stopped export of goods to Pakistan.

India’s Diplomatic Victory Over Pakistan

Organization of Islamic cooperation, OIC, invited Sushma Swaraj, the Minister of External Affairs of India to address the member nations. Pakistan boycotted the meet saying UAE should have consulted them before inviting Sushma Swaraj. Sushma Swaraj became the first woman to address a meeting of OIC.

Pakistan And Its Reputation Of Being A Safe Haven For Terrorists

Global terrorist Osama Bin Laden, one of the founders of Al-Qaeda, was killed in an operation carried out by the US Special Forces at Abbottabad, Pakistan. It has been proven time and time again that Pakistan is a haven for terrorists.

Masood Azhar is reportedly the mastermind of the cowardly Pulwama attack. Masood Azhar is suspected to be hiding in Pakistan. India has produced substantial evidence of terrorist camps in Pakistan, but Pakistan has been refuting the allegations made by India, counterparts.

China Blocking India’s Way

Masood Azhar is the kingpin of the attack that took the lives of 44 brave CRPF jawans. India wants Masood Azhar to be branded a ‘global terrorist’.

United Nations Security Council UNSC, called for a meeting of all Veto nations. Veto nations are China, France, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. All members apart from China decided to brand Masood Azhar a global terrorist, thereby blocking India’s bid at the UNSC. This is because China had to facilitate the China – Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Branding Azhar a global terrorist would spoil the reputation of Pakistan across the World and China doesn’t want Pakistan to face such a situation. This is the fourth time China has voted against deeming Azhar a global terrorist.

Following this move by China, #BoycottChineseProducts is trending on twitter.

What are the possible financial implications if India boycotts Chinese products?

Chinese products have a huge global market. The United States of America imports 19.2% of the total Chinese products. India is the seventh largest importer of Chinese products. India is a market for 3.1% exports of China and the market is worth $76.9 Billion.

Going by the numbers, India boycotting Chinese products wouldn’t have much of an impact on the Chinese economy. China is a global manufacturing hub. Indian economy would suffer a lot by boycotting Chinese products.

Following are the major implications of boycotting Chinese products:

·China is the biggest trade partner of India. Indian economy would be massively jolted by blocking Chinese products in India.

·India heavily imports raw materials and machinery from China. By boycotting Chinese products, Indian manufacturing sector would crash.

·With India boycotting Chinese products, China too would follow suit, boycotting imports from India. China imports around 1% of its total imports from India. This is roughly around 4.5% of the total exports of India. If China boycotts Indian products, the Indian economy would take a massive hit.

·It would be difficult for India to find replacements for cheap Chinese products. Indian mid and low income citizens would be massively impacted. Most toys and dolls in India are Chinese made.

Impact On Smartphones in India

By banning Chinese products, we will have to stop importing cheap smartphones that are made in China. Most smartphones are manufactured and assembled in China, including Apple and Samsung. By boycotting Chinese products, you also boycott smartphones.

The kind of features that a 10k Chinese made smartphone offers would not be offered by even a 25k Sony and Samsung made phone. Chinese smartphones have become the heart and soul of communications in rural India. Most Indians are able to afford a smartphone due to the presence of Chinese made phones.
