India to lower tariffs on imports of Australian citrus
As part of ongoing free trade agreement negotiations, India and Australia have reached an interim arrangement whereby tariffs on Australian citrus exports will be halved. Once it comes into force, the interim agreement will allow the entry of 13,700 tons of Australian citrus into India at a reduced tariff of 15%.
The agreement coincides with a renewed effort by Citrus Australia to increase exports to the subcontinent.
The citrus industry is one of Australia’s largest fresh fruit exporters and views India as a very promising market.
