India on Sunday, June 16, imposed higher tariffs on 28 items imported from the United States, in retaliation for Washington’s recent withdrawal of trade privileges for New Delhi.
The increased duties apply to products including almonds, apples, and walnuts, the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs said.
The list initially included 29 goods but artemia, a kind of shrimp, has been removed from the list.
India is the number two market of California almonds and Washington apples.
The trade tensions come despite efforts from Washington to boost ties with India as a counterweight to China, and assertions made by both US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi about their good relationship.
