THE global situation is becoming extremely challenging as rising protectionism, tariff war and geo-political conflicts is leading to uncertainty in global trade. India’s exports have always followed the trend in global imports. Therefore, when global imports are declining, our exports are also taking a hit. In view of the above, to enable the EXIM fraternity to discuss the current trend in global trade, Federation of Indian Export Organisation (FIEO) Western Region and VIA EXIM Forum will be jointly organising an exporters meet on ‘Challenges and opportunities in international trade’ on February 15, from 2.30 pm to 5 pm at VIA Auditorium, Udyog Bhawan, Civil Lines. FIEO President, Sharad Kumar Saraf will chair the meeting and interact with the participants on the occasion.
Issues and concerns pertaining to schemes such as MEIS, DBK, GST refund, caution listing of exporters and agencies such as DGFT, Customs, GST, Banking, RBI, Ports, Shipping Liners, Insurance etc., will be discussed during the meeting. FIEO & VIA are member of several monitoring groups, task forces and advisory committees of Ministry of Commerce, Reserve Bank of India and other Government departments and bodies. The issues and inputs discussed during the meeting will go a long way in shaping the policies and procedures for export import-trade from India. For details and registration, interested persons may contact VIA (Phone numbers: 0712-2554090, 2561211).
