The Indian government said late last month that on top of the current import tariffs and quotas for imported peas they would be introducing a minimum price.
Mac Ross is Pulse Canada's Director of Market Access and Trade Policy.
“As per usual, it comes without any prior notification to India's global trading partners and its caused exporters and the trade not only here in Canada but all over the world to ask questions regarding how this new requirement will unfold.”
He says there may be a minimum import price, as well as having all pea imports restricted to one port.
Ross notes there's work to be done with our global partners and our own government to understand the overall details of this requirement.
India placed a 50 % tariff on Canadian peas in November 2017.Click here to see more...
