As per the WTO statistics, India ranks 19th among the top exporters in the world but india’s share in the global exports is
only 1.6%. Our foreign trade policy 2009-14 sets out goal of doubling indias exports of goods and services by 2014 with
long term objective of doubling india’s share in the global trade by end of 2020 through appropriate policy support.
Obtaining increased market access to the world market, diversification of export markets, reduction of transaction costs,
simplification of export procedures and improvement of infrastructure related to exports poses great challenges to india in
our endeavour to increase our exports and to double our share.
If manufacturing is to have larger share of GDP and create larger employement, then engineering and chemicals are the key
to our future. Engineering exports accounts for over 20% of our total export basket. Machinery and transport Equipments
is the dominant sector of world exports and accounts for more than 1/3rd of world exports but india’s share in this sector
is negligible. Here also we have a huge portential for growth.
Pharma industry has really done well in establishing our global reputation for affordable and quality products. India is
today one of the largest exporters of generics. Prospects for expansion in this segment are very good and offers great
opportunity as more and more drugs come off patents.
In textiles there is high growth opportunities since the dismantling of quota regime. Product diversification in garments has
become essential to achieve increased export growth rate.
Other key sectors are gems and jewellery which is highly labour intensive. Apart from these, processed fruits and vegetables,
organic agricultural produce and fresh fruits and vegetables for retail in super market also hold out great promise
