Continuing of the rationale behind export promotion measures Sh. Satendra Gupta said “the capability of Indian MSME products to compete in international markets is reflected in its share of about 34% in national exports. In case of items like readymade garments, leather goods, processed foods, engineering items, the performance has been commendable both in terms of value and their share within the MSME sector while in some cases like sports goods they account for 100% share to the total exports of the sector. In view of this, export promotion from the small scale sector has been accorded high priority in India’s export promotion strategy which includes simplification of procedures, incentives for higher production of exports, preferential treatments to MSMEs in the market development fund, simplification of duty drawback rules, etc. Products of MSME exporters are displayed in international exhibitions free of cost under MSME-DO Umbrella abroad.”
