Talks have become bogged down in recent weeks, with the EU's chief negotiator saying not enough progress had been made to begin discussing a free trade dealDeepening uncertainties over the direction and timetable of Brexit negotiations may force Toyota to shift some UK production elsewhere if they are not addressed, the Japanese carmaker warned on Tuesday.Early Government assurances that free trade with the European Union would survive Britain's departure have been replaced by talk of transition periods, Toyota executive vice president Didier Leroy told Reuters."A few months ago the UK Government was saying, 'We're sure we'll be able to negotiate (a deal) without any trade tax,'" Leroy said in an interview at the Frankfurt car show. "They are not saying that any more."He added: "It's clear that if we have to wait two to three more years to have a clarity on this topic, we will have a big question-mark about our future investment in the country."Brexit talks have become bogged down in recent weeks, with the EU's chief negotiator saying not enough progress had been made to begin discussing a free trade deal, amid differences over the size of the "divorce settlement" London should pay. Britain's car industry is increasingly anxious that its exports could face tariffs and other barriers after 2019.PSA Group boss Carlos Tavares sounded an impatient note on Tuesday, saying Brexit uncertainties were complicating integration with Opel and its British Vauxhall plants, acquired by the Peugeot maker from General Motors."Until we have more visibility on the trade dimension it's very hard to define a strategy," Mr Tavares said in Frankfurt.Jaguar Land Rover, Britain's biggest automaker, also warned last week that Brexit was already deterring EU workers and suppliers.Toyota announced plans in March to begin upgrading its Burnaston plant in central England in preparation for future models at a cost of £240m, after receiving written assurances from London.But Mr Leroy, Toyota's top foreign executive, said the company could not wait indefinitely before deciding whether to build a new model at the site after production of the ageing Avensis model ends. Burnaston also builds the smaller Auris."We cannot take this kind of decision before we have clarity on the future trade relationship," said Mr Leroy."We will not close the plant tomorrow morning, but if in two to three years we have to decide some future investments, of course the key point will be the competitiveness of this plant in future."Mr Leroy declined to say how much of the upgrade funds had already been spent, stressing that considerably larger sums would be needed to launch production of any new vehicles.Without further investment, Burnaston's output "will probably start to decline before we will be able to take a decision," Mr Leroy said. "The longer we have to wait, the more potential there is to move to another factory."He added: "We will not postpone a new product for three more years just because the negotiation is going to take three more years. So really there's a strong need for us to have clarity as quickly as possible."Source: www.independent.co.uk

On Sept. 6, the U.S. Commerce Department on Wednesday launched anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations against imports of stainless steel flanges from China and India, the latest trade protectionist move by the Trump administration.The investigations were initiated based on petitions filed by the Coalition of American Flange Producers and its two members, the department said in a statement.They alleged that Chinese and Indian producers were dumping stainless steel flanges in the U.S. market with margins ranging from 78.49 percent to 257.11 percent.They also claimed that the governments of China and India were providing "unfair" subsidies to domestic producers of stainless steel flanges, the department said.The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), another U.S. trade authority, is scheduled to make its preliminary inquiry determinations around Oct. 2.The probe will continue if the ITC determines that there is a reasonable indication that imports of stainless steel flanges from these two countries materially injure or threaten the domestic industry of the United States.In 2016, imports of these products from China and India were estimated at about 16.3 million U.S. dollars and 32.1 million dollars, respectively, according to the department.The Trump administration has initiated 62 anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations so far this year, up 41 percent year-on-year, the department said.China's Ministry of Commerce has kept urging Washington to abide by its commitment against protectionism and help maintain a free, open and just international trade environment.Source: Xinhuanet

KOLKATA: Domestic steel production is expected to remain high in the current year 2017-18 and is likely to rise by around 8-10%, an industry research report by CARE Ratings has said. However, steel prices may rise going forward as steel producers are expected to face increased cost pressure due to supply disruption and a steep surge in coking coal prices on account of Cyclone Debbie in Australia. The latter accounts for around 70% of India’s coking coal requirements that are fulfilled through imports. Sharing its outlook for steel industry in the current year, the latest report by the agency said government allocation for infrastructure in the union budget 2017-18 is expected to act as driver for construction and infrastructure in the country. Additionally, the National Steel Policy 2017 also aims to raise steel production the report pointed out. A number of steps by the government are likely to increase domestic steel consumption and thereby production it said. It includes Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Make in India campaign, encouraging use of Made in India steel for various projects and spending in areas like railways, roads and urban development. Domestic producers are also increasing steel producing capacities expecting an increase in demand for steel of account of several initiatives taken by the government.
