Dear Stakeholders,

Realizing the role of districts in export promotion, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), GoI has taken initiative of “Developing District as Export Hub”. As a part of this initiative, Federation has been entrusted to prepare District Export Strategies in respect of 20 Districts.

The idea is to first identify a product carrying export potential in these districts; map concerns of stakeholders (related to infrastructure, logistics, policy, productivity etc); seek suggestions and accordingly draw an actionable strategy for the District so that it can be developed as an export hub.

We sincerely request you to kindly spare some and participate to in this important exercise aimed to facilitate and push your exports as well as overall exports from your District.

Looking forward to your active participation.
