Research & Analysis

Feeling the pulse of Indian and global economies

At the helm of Exim Bank's Research & Analysis Group (RAG) is a team of experienced economists and strategists who steer the group with in-depth insights on international economics, trade and investment through qualitative and quantitative research techniques.

The Group skillfully monitors trends in global and domestic economies to analyse their impact on Indian and other developing economies. Besides catering to the constituents within the Bank, the Group also connects with the Government, RBI, exporters/importers, trade & industry associations, external credit agencies, academic institutions and researchers.

The Group envisages avenues to enhance India's international engagement and implements the research under a broad classification of regional, sectoral and policy related studies; which are then published as Occasional Papers, Working Papers, Books, etc.

The Group also undertakes country profiles to:

  • assess the economic, political, currency and credit risks involved

  • identify export opportunities in the country concerned

  • provide short-to-medium term economic outlook of a country

  • indicate the economic risk involved in doing business with country
