Exporters' association FIEO on Friday said the new agricultural export policy would give a boost to exports from the sector.

Welcoming the approval given to new Agri Export Policy by the Cabinet, Ganesh Kumar Gupta, President, FIEO said that the new Policy would provide huge impetus to agri exports from the country and will help in doubling farmers’ income, he said.

The corner stone of the policy is stability which is very much needed for exports as it takes a long time to develop a market and switch on-off policy does not make us a reliable supplier, he added.

The FIEO Chief said that the focus on organic is in line with global trend as more & more consumers are moving towards organic food. This will also help exports from the North-East and other hilly region of the country.

However, we need to ensure that adequate certification agencies are available so that farmers/exporters get such certification at the door step, he added.

Gupta also hoped that the new Policy will encourage investment in pack houses and cold chain so that quality agri products are exported from the country which will help us to reach the target of US$ 60 billion agri-exports.
