The Cochin Chamber proposes to organise a Seminar on “India’s Foreign Trade Policy 2020-2025” on Friday, the 27th of September 2019 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hotel Park Central, Kaloor, Ernakulam. (Registration at 9:30 a.m.)


This programme is aimed at providing the Exim community in Kerala a platform to discuss the current Policy and offer suggestions to the Government as to what they think should be the changes in the forthcoming policy that could help fulfil the Government’s vision for India’s foreign trade in the future. The inputs received at the Seminar will be collated and sent to the Union Government for their consideration and action. 


India’s Foreign Trade Policy is aimed at augmenting the Indian exports of goods and services, generating employment and increasing value addition in the country. The Government, through the implementation of the policy, also seeks to develop the manufacturing and service sectors and facilitate sustained growth in exports from India and imports to India. It also seeks to stimulate sustained economic growth by providing access to essential raw materials, intermediates, components, consumables and capital goods essential for augmenting production and providing services.


The Foreign Trade Policy (FTP) 2015-2020, currently in force, expires in March next year. We understand that the Government of India has commenced an exercise to revamp the existing Foreign Trade Policy in order to come out with a new one by March next year - A forward-thinking policy that will substantially boost the export efforts of India and it’s economic growth. In this connection, the Government has started consultation meetings with various interest groups to elicit the views of the Exim community before framing the new Policy.
