The Commerce Ministry is working on multiple fronts in order to help Indian exporters increase shipments to the world, said Union Minister of Commerce & Industry Suresh Prabhu.

In order to incentivise and encourage Indian companies to compete globally by improving their exports, the Commerce Ministry is working on various fronts like creation of new policies, improving Ease of Doing Business, scrapping irrelevant regulations and formulating the concept of growth of GDP in every district of the country, said Prabhu.

Speaking at the inauguration of the National Forum organized by Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP) and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), in New Delhi on Monday, the minister stated that India has not realized its full potential of exports and cooperation with neighbouring countries like Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and we must strive to work closely with these countries who have managed to become a part of the global value chain in industries like textiles.

As the Indian economy continues its growth trajectory and strives to reach USD 5 trillion by 2025, the manufacturing sector is expected to play a key role by contributing USD 1 trillion to the overall target, requiring the sector to grow 2.5 times in next 7 years, he added.

The country needs to build further momentum and target at maximizing local value add, creating scale, capturing global market share and fulfilling India’s job creation needs, Prabhu said.

The two-day forum will discuss issues that are restricting growth in the manufacturing sector, identify growth drivers and create the roadmap.

The sectors shortlisted for the roadmap based on their contribution, size and potential are automotive, textiles, chemicals, electronics, capital goods, food processing and metals & mining.

In addition, there will be a significant focus of this exercise on various horizontal pillars of manufacturing, including cost of doing business, EoDB and trade policy, technology and R&D, job creation and skilling.
