India, the leader of plastic machinery industry group said he after assessment of the government is expected to further extend the high anti-dumping duties on chinese-made injection molding machine.

India's resin industry recently raised tariffs on imported materials, from 5% to 7.5%, but the all India plastic manufacturing association expressed strong opposition, because it can improve the Indian injection molding the production cost of enterprises and other processors.

Small industries also issued a similar calls. India regeneration equipment manufacturers Vipul Plastic Machinery Pvt Ltd. Company told exhibition official newspaper in an interview, the government should be a higher tariff on chinese-made regeneration Machinery.

Management committee chairman of the all India plastic manufacturing association Arvind Mehta said that 90% of India's manufacturing enterprises are small and medium-sized enterprises. He has a speech pointed out that a free trade agreement with asean countries, leading to Indian companies than duty-free imports at a disadvantage.

The all India association of plastic manufacturing was first put forward in September for the request of the plastic products to raise tariffs, to seek the aid of government in a larger range.

He did not directly respond to a request for tariff increases, but said India enterprise itself exists all sorts of problems, such as smaller enterprises, should be to find a way to improve themselves, such as can through increased research and development.

He in conference meeting leaders of more than 100 industry association, said the current views on the development of the industry is very short-sighted.

Also urged India to attend the conference, a spokesman for the other enterprises to improve capital management, or to take similar to German VDMA machinery industry trade association's code of conduct.

Joshi said that the government needs to take measures to improve infrastructure, also singled out plastic industry of India port.

Although government officials defended trade agreements, but India's plastic machinery association chairman, said the government is expected to be extended in 2009 began to levy of anti-dumping duties on Chinese injection molding machine.

Association President, Mamata Machinery Pvt Ltd., chairman of the board of directors of the company Mahendra Patel asked whether they will extend the anti-dumping said, "that's for sure. We are so sure, because we urge, and all the signs are good."

Injection molding machine anti-dumping duties has great influence on some Chinese machinery maker, for some companies, the tax rate is as high as 223%.

Ningbo sea too Shen Yubiao plastic machinery co., LTD., said in an interview on the window sill, the company annual sales to India before anti-dumping duties imposed hundreds of machines, and now only about 15 units per year. He said, the company's participation is India's market potential for a long time.
