Trump targets India for high import duty on Harley Davidson


WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump targeted India on a high import duty on the Harley Davidson motorcycle on Wednesday and dismissed it as inappropriate. This response from Trump came at a time when India has reduced the import duty on imported motorcycles by an expensive brand like Harley Davidson at 50%. Not only that, Trump also threatens to increase import duties on Indian motorcycles. During the discussion with the members of the Congress on the Iron and Steel Industry, Trump said that. Trump said the Indian government recently reduced the duty on imported motorcycles from 75% to 50%, which is not enough and they asked him to comply with each other because motorcycle imports into the United States are ' zero tax '. .


The US president also indirectly mentioned the recent conversation with Prime Minister Narendra Modi about it. Trump said as part of the discussions held with Modi last week, "A tall gentleman from India called me and said that we have reduced the right on motorcycles by 75% and even 100% to 50%. " Trump once again advocated "mutual monitoring" and accused countries of abusing trade relations with the United States.

He said, "Therefore, I say that in such cases, there should be mutual monitoring in such cases. I do not blame India. I think they should go with it. I do not know why people stay away from each other (mutual follow-up), but this is an example that is unfair. I think there should be mutual monitoring.


It should be noted that motorcycles imported from expensive brands such as Harley Davidson and Triumph will be cheap in India after the reduction of import duties. Until now, the import of motorcycles with a cylinder capacity less than or equal to 800 cc was charged at 60%. On the engine with a cubic capacity of 800 cm3 and over, 75% is loaded.
