Assistance was provided through several schemes to promote exports - Trade Infrastructure for Export Scheme (TIES) and Market Access Initiatives (MAI) Scheme.

Other measures include remission of Duties and Taxes on Exported Products (RoDTEP) scheme which has been implemented since 1 January 2021. Similarly, anomalies in 432 tariff lines have been addressed and the corrected rates have been implemented with effect from January 16 2023.

Common Digital Platform for Certificate of Origin has been launched to facilitate trade and increase Free Trade Agreement (FTA) utilization by exporters.

“Districts as export hubs have been launched by identifying products with export potential in each district. The bottlenecks for exporting these products are being addressed and local exporters/manufacturers are being supported to generate employment in the districts," the minister said, adding that the active role of Indian missions abroad towards promoting trade, tourism, technology and investment goals have been enhanced.
