“We have just completed our deliberations on our coordinated and concerted response to the tragedy of 26 December 2004 and the crisis taking place in its aftermath.

In the spirit of solidarity, we have threshed out ways and means of intensifying the current relief and rehabilitation work being carried out in the stricken areas. More important, we have established a system by which this massive effort can be carried out in a more coordinated manner.

We have, moreover, taken the first steps toward ensuring our preparedness to quickly and effectively deal with natural disasters in the future—through transnational, multi-sectoral collaboration.

We have directly appealed to the United Nations Secretary-General in person to appoint a Special Representative to enhance coordination among donor countries, international organizations and non-governmental relief organizations with the governments of affected countries.

We have requested the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, the Islamic Development Bank and other international financial institutions to provide the funds necessary to ensure the viability and sustainability of national rehabilitation and reconstruction programmes.

We have agreed to establish a Regional Disaster Early Warning Centre for the Indian Ocean region.

In the framework of ASEAN, we have decided to establish a stand-by arrangement for the use of military and civil defense personnel and logistics for disaster relief operation.

We will also be setting up an ASEAN Humanitarian Assistance Centre and an ASEAN Disaster Information-sharing and Communication Network.

We have no illusions that we have resolved the crisis at hand: the tasks of relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction that we have to carry out will take five to ten years, with resources beyond the means of any single country. We have a long way to go.

Nevertheless we know that we have made a sensible beginning. And we know that we can build reasonable and realistic hopes on that beginning …..”.

Tourism sector adds its weight to forex kitty

The Economic Times, Mumbai: November 23, 2004)

For the 10 months ended October 2004, forex receipts from the tourism sector totalled $3,853m, up 38% over the corresponding tally last year.   This total exceeds the forex receipts of $3,602m earned in January-December 2003.   In rupee terms, forex receipts for the 10 months grew 33% to Rs 17,473 crore from Rs 13,103 crore.  Income from tourism was stagnant between 2000 and 2003.


Ministry clarifies on payment of service tax on goods transport agencies

(Business Line: December 29, 2004)

The Finance Ministry on Tuesday (28th) clarified that the apprehension among a section of traders that they would have to pay the service tax levied on goods transport agencies were misplaced.  An official release issued by the Finance Ministry said that the Government has taken steps to ensure that traders are generally kept out of the service tax net.  "Primarily, the liability to pay the service tax is on the goods transport agencies" the release said.  However, if the consignor or the consignee falls under one of the following seven categories

-          factory registered under or governed by the Factories Act;

-          or company established by or under the Companies Act;

-          or corporation established by or under any law;

-          or society registered under Societies Registration Act or similar law;

-          or co-operative society established by or under any law;

-          or dealer of excisable goods, registered under the Central Excise Law;

-          or any body corporate established or a partnership firm registered by or under any law

then the person making payment towards freight would be liable to pay the service tax.


Therefore, unless a trader falls under one of the above categories or makes payment of freight when transacting with any one of the seven categories, the trader would not be liable to pay the service tax.  Thus, a trader sending goods to another trade or any entity outside the above seven categories, would not be liable to pay service tax, even if the freight is paid by him.

India to renegotiate Tax Treaty with Malaysia

(Business Line – 29.12.2004)

India is set to re-negotiate the recently-notified revised tax treaty with Malaysia, mainly to prevent treaty shopping.  Treaty shopping arises when a resident of a third country takes unfair advantage of the beneficial provisions of a tax treaty between two other countries, in this case, the Indo-Malaysian tax treaty.  Malaysia is one of India’s largest trading partners among the ASEAN countries, with bilateral trade recording $3.2 billion and projected to cross $4 billion by the year end.    Treaty shopping can be prevented if there is a “limitation of benefit” clause in the treaty.  India is pushing for insertion of this clause in the Indo-Malaysian tax treaty.  The Malaysian authorities have given their ‘in principle’ nod to the re-negotiation.   The revised tax treat with Malaysia was notified recently on October 12, 2004.

The Singapore Economy registered a moderation of growth in the fourth quarter of 2004.  Advance estimates show that GDP rose by 5.4 percent in the quarter compared to the same period in 2003.


For 2004 as a whole, the economy is estimated to have grown by 8.1 percent in real terms.  The manufacturing sector and services producing industries expanded by 13.1 percent and 7.5 percent respectively, while the construction sector contracted by 6.3 percent.


Total trade


Singapore’s total trade grew a robust 22.2 percent in November 2004, sustaining the strong double digit growth trend that started in February 2004.  However, on a month-to-month basis, total trade dipped 6.7 percent from the level in October 2004.


External trade


In the third quarter of 2004, Singapore’s external trade grew a brisk 27.8%, following the growth of 26.5% in 2nd quarter of 2004.  Total exports expanded by 25.2% on the back of a 25.7% gain in second quarter 2004.  This mainly reflected the robust growth of domestic exports which rose to 25.3% from 22.8% in the same period.  The rate of NODX growth rose to 20.8% from 21.1% in the second quarter.  In volume terms, total trade continued to turn in a strong performance of 25.0% after a 26.0% rise a quarter earlier.


Outlook for 2005


While the rate of global economic growth is expected to ease in 2005, the IMF has projected that it would remain well above levels seen between 2001 and 2003. 


Economic growth rates in key Asian economies are projected to ease in 2005.


An important risk factor to economic growth in 2005 is developments in oil prices.  Due to the small spare capacity in the oil industry, a significant production disruption in any of the key producer countries could send prices sharply higher.

Economy (News extracts)

(Sunday Observer – 26.12.2004)

The Economy had grown over 5.5 percent during the first nine months of year 2004 despite the oil shock and the severe drought that prevailed in the second and third quarters of the year.

Accordingly, in the third quarter of the year the GDP growth rate is five percent at constant prices (1998), which is 0.5 percent below the growth rate of the third quarter of last year, an official of the Department of Census and Statistics (DCS) said. Economic analysts say that this is really a very satisfactory achievement under adverse internal and external conditions.

Since the fourth quarter of the year, economic activities of all sectors have functioned well, and a growth rate of more than 5.5% can be expected for the year, they have predicted.

Vietnam overcame various difficulties to obtain a GDP growth rate of almost 7.7 percent in 2004, a four-year record, ranking the second in Southeast Asia.  The achievement was of great significance as the country had to cope with adverse weather which caused flash floods and prolonged drought, the outbreak of avian flu and increases in prices for material inputs.    Another outstanding achievement of the country’s economy in 2004 was its successful efforts in mobilizing almost 16 billion USD, up 19 percent year on year and making up 36.3 percent of the country’s GDP, for social development projects and programmes.  Vietnam’s economic growth has helped create jobs for 1.5 million people and reduce the poverty rate to around 8.3 percent.


The economic achievements in 2004 have created favourable conditions for Vietnam to realize its target of a 8.5 percent rise in GDP in year 2005.


Exports/ Imports


The brightest point in Vietnam’s economic outlook in 2004 was its export revenue of 26 billion USD, a seven-year high and an increase of almost 30 percent compared to 2003.  Export volume represented 3.82 billion USD or 65.5 percent of the 5.82 billion USD export earning rise while price increases made up only 2 billion USD or 34.5 percent of the total.


Vietnam’s import value also jumped in 2004.  Consequently, the country registered a trade deficit of about 5.52 billion USD, also a record so far.  It mainly purchased material, fuel, equipment and machinery for capital construction and for export production.


Vietnam’s trade ministry forecast that imports would rise 14 percent in 2005 to $36 billion and exports would increase by 17 percent to $30.5 billion, resulting in a trade gap of $5.5 billion. 




Vietnam received 2.9 million foreign visitors this year, an increase of 19 percent over last year.  It is reported that revenue from business related to tourism in Vietnam grew by 19 percent this year to about US$ 1.72 billion.
