Tea Board of India is planning to set up an ?integrated tea park? near the Dhamra port in north Odisha. The park will be an export-oriented unit, with facilities for warehousing, packaging, blending, testing and allied activities. Land required for the park will be 50 acres. India is the world's second largest tea producer, after China, accounting for 23 per cent. Exports from this country have 11 per cent share in global shipments.
Teaboard of India has advocated a preferential tariff for India and China tea trade. India exports 8-8.5 million kg of tea to China every year , while India import Chinese green tea to the tune of 350,000 kg. Currently, India imposes 150 per cent import duty on tea from China, while China imposes 50 per cent duty on tea from India. Nearly 80 per cent of China?s annual tea production of around 2,600 million kg (mkg) is green tea while the remaining 18 per cent is Oolong variety. The tea board has recommended a preferential tariff for mutual tea imports and exports. India and China are not competitors as far as tea is concerned, but rather complement each other.
