Exporters urged to make better use of FTAs to enhance global presence
Mar 15, 2019

India’s exports will touch an all-time high of $330 billion this year surpassing the earlier peak of $314 billion recorded in 2013-14, said Anup Wadhawan, Commerce Secretary.
Speaking at the eighth edition of International Engineering Sourcing Show (IESS VIII) here on Thursday, organised by EEPC India with Malaysia as a partner country, Wadhawan said, the engineering sector achieved a record level of exports at $76.2 billion in 2017-18 despite increasing sentiment of trade protectionism across the globe.
Releasing the ‘EEPC India strategy paper for growth of engineering exports’, Wadhawan said, EEPC has set an ambitious export target of $200 billion of engineering products by 2025 from the current $80 billion.
The Commerce Secretary also urged exporters to make better use of India’s Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with various countries to enhance their market presence globally.
