Summary of the lead morning meeting:
It is reported that the Indian government has decided to impose tariffs on 28 US products exported to India from 16 June last year. India drew up the above-mentioned tariff list in June last year in revenge for the increase of steel and aluminum tariffs imposed by the United States on India. India has repeatedly postponed the date of levying tariffs, hoping to push forward relevant negotiations with the United States. On 5 June this year, the US Government announced the abolition of GSP treatment for India, resulting in more tensions in trade relations between the two countries.
