The Union Commerce Minister has chaired the 3rd meeting of the Council for Trade Development and Promotion in New Delhi. The underlying objective is to enhance the Centre's cooperation with the states and union territories in making the latter active partners in boosting India's exports. In his speech, the minister called upon states to explore ways of  tapping into the promising global trade pegged at 5 trillion dollars. The intent sounds good. Without actively involving the states, it would never be impossible for the country to make a permanent difference in exports.

It is a no brainier to say that our export sector has come a long way in the last few decades, but when we compare it with that of China or even minnows like Thailand, it becomes clear that we, despite being a vast resource-rich country, are lagging far behind them. In order to change this situation, we need to change a lot of things, and one among them is certainly to enhance the participation and contribution of our states to exports. I raised this issue on SME Times long back in 2012, and it is a relief to see that the government is now taking it seriously.

So, how to begin with this? The first thing that seems imperative is to find out which state has how much export potential and in which areas. Currently there is no adequate mechanism to find it out. Without such a mechanism, it would be difficult to begin with. Secondly, it must also be taken into consideration that all states are not alike in term of development level, export awareness and facilities available. So, each state needs customized support from the Centre. Also, while framing foreign trade policies the Centre must take care of this aspect.

As of now it is clearly evident that our export activities are concentrated to some select fields and a few regions. Most of the states have vast export potential but lack of awareness, poor infrastructure, lack of funding, etc. are some of the major problems that are preventing them from exploiting this potential. Additionally, states must also ensure that these efforts are taken to the grass-root level. The local bodies can be involved to inculcate an export culture among the masses.

I invite your opinions.

Boosting Export will give our country more strong
Kamal Kumar Sehgal | Tue Jan 16 15:55:52 2018
India need to make a strong strategy & take strongly effective steps to boost export without wasting a minute.


Export from India.
Kunnakkattu J | Sat Jan 13 09:47:21 2018
I do appreciate the interest of center to boost export. The main hurdles are awareness, information,fund, support. The center start a site for education of export, the items in need at which country, the formalities to complete with. I am a certificate holder in EDI for entrepreneurship, but faced all problems with registration to fund. The best method to enhance export is to start a cell.in every consulate with information on items need there. Second single window system from registration to fund be arranged by financial institutions.


Centre and state meeting.
B. S. KOLAKI | Thu Jan 11 05:25:19 2018
Yes your openoin is correct. We should concetrate on agricultural exports also because all states have something to export/sell. There are many sick industries also we have to find the reason for that and offer remedies/help, the concerned state should do it.Recently Nandini a gornment dairy in Karnataka has sent 20000 ltrs of milk to Kashmir, this will help Kasmiries to have good milk and Nandini will earn more profit, it can be further extended to Bangaladesh and other neighbouring countries especially Asian countries, it should be encouraged. Transportation Infrastrucure should be improved e.g. Rail-faster trains have to be introduced.Road transportation is improved but the levy of toll is very high and causing wastage of precious time.

NON REFUND OF GST
PANKAJ | Wed Jan 10 09:09:55 2018
Non refund of GST is effecting exports majorly. Majority of merchant exporters are still waiting to see their refunds of July 2017. So, it is not fair to expect growth in exports since the money is stacked with government and small merchant exporters facing financial difficulties to prepare / execute new orders.


IDENTIFICATION OF EXPORT PRODUCTS
Balamurali | Wed Jan 10 06:58:29 2018
State governments should identify the potential export products and categorizes them as raw form,1st stage value added product and 2nd stage VA product with prospective export markets analyzing the exports from other countries and best practices from them.

Export
R k Bhandari advocate Chandigarh | Wed Jan 10 04:58:20 2018
Standing circumstances and determinants at present will nit act as catalytic agent to boost exports collectively through centre and states at least for two years Recalling 2012 and 2018 manufacturing units of international standards lack spirited strength and financial stamina to react to government export policies Minister's address is symbolic without taking into ground realities and politically motivated Frequent changes in any law rules and regulations be it import or export malign the importance of such schemes rtc

GST EFFECTING EXPORTERS VERY BADLY
VISHNU KUMAR | Wed Jan 10 03:12:55 2018
GST RATES STILL NOT CLEAR. MANUFACTURERS ARE CHARGING AS PER THEIR RATIO OF GST. EXPORTERS ARE NOT GETTING REFUND OF IGST PAID. IT IS STILL CONFUSION WHO WILL HELP FOR CLAIM IGST EITHER SALE/GST ADVOCATE OR CHA. ? BEING MERCHANT EXPORTER WE ARE RELUCTANT TO ADD GST 18% BECAUSE WE LOST TRUST FROM THIS GOVERNMENT. RESULT :- NO BUSINESS DUE COMPETITION WITH CHINA,TIWAN.
