Exim Bank's Masterclass on 'India's Merchandise Exports: Drivers and Growth Prospects'

Date: June 21, 2019 / 3 PM

About the Webinar:

India is now on the threshold of a high growth trajectory, with a distinct possibility of touching US$ 5 trillion GDP as early as 2024. A key driver for India to reach the US$ 5 trillion mark sooner than later would be exports – both merchandise and services. A robust export strategy in India is therefore not a policy choice, but a growth imperative. An essential first step towards such a strategy would be examination of the recent inertia in exports, identification of the various impediments to export growth, and devising of suitable measures to reverse the recent sluggish growth. Exim Bank’s webinar on ‘India's Merchandise Exports: Drivers and Growth Prospects’ is an attempt to analyse these aspects of India’s exports.

The webinar shall cover:

  • Recent Trends in India’s Exports
  • Key Factors Impacting India’s Growth
    • Price Competitiveness
    • Non-Price Competitiveness
    • Protectionism and other Barriers to Trade
  • Select Recommendations for Imparting Resilience to the Exports Basket
