3rd Meeting of Council of Trade Development and Promotion Held in New Delhi

The Union Minister for Commerce & Industry Shri. Suresh Prabhu chaired the 3rd meeting of the Council of Trade Development and Promotion (CTDP) in New Delhi.

Speaking on the occasion he called upon states to explore ways of  tapping into global trade pegged at 5 trillion dollars by promoting services exports, organic farming, value addition to agricultural products, utilisation of the benefits accorded to the SEZs and creating employment.

Stress has been given on the importance of creating an enabling environment for promoting exports. There was a need to develop state and district level strategies. Districts should be the new units of growth and planning should be done around this, he added.

The objective of the meeting was to enhance the Centre’s cooperation with the states and union territories in making the latter active partners in boosting India’s exports.

CTDP was constituted in July, 2015 to ensure a continuous dialogue with State Governments/UTs on measures for providing International trade enabling environment in States.
