Foreign trade policy by month-end

The Commerce and Industry Ministry is expected to announce the new five-year foreign trade policy (20014-19) by the end of this month as it seeks to boost manufacturing and exports, among other things.

The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) is giving final touches to the policy.
"It is expected that the new FTP would be announced by August-end," an official source said.
The new policy would focus on wide range of issues including services exports, standards and branding of products.

All exports- and imports-related activities are governed by the FTP. It mainly aims at enhancing the country's exports and use trade expansion as an effective instrument of economic growth and employment generation.
