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.
Indias exports in the last three years have been hovering around $300 billion and now there is a need to boost it further and enhance its contribution in the world trade.
All exports- and imports-related activities are governed by the FTP. It mainly aims at enhancing the countrys exports and use trade expansion as an effective instrument of economic growth and employment generation. Federation of Indian export organisations (FIEO) has suggested to focus more on export of services and hi-tech products in the new policy. PTI
