Export awareness camp held for industrialists, entrepreneurs

FKCCI district coordination committee chairman Sud­hakar Shetty on Wednesday said that industrialists play a very crucial role in the devel­opment of export market.

Speaking after inaugu­rating the Export Awareness Camp organised by Visves­varaya Trade Promotion cen­tre (VTPC), in association with Mysuru Chamber of Com­merce and Industry (MCCI), District Industries centre in the city, he said Karnataka contributes nearly 13% of the nation’s export market. “A re­cent statistics says that 52 bil­lion exports have been made by India every year. Earlier exports trade were predomi­nantly done by the large scale industries but in the recent times, the scope for exports have been increased and even MSI (Medium scale Industries) are exporting goods and their products. India is doing well in exporting agricultural, tex­tiles and other products and we can add on to the export share when we give more im­portance to quality, presenta­tion and market and provide value products.

“We Industrialists are not making full use of the export potential. China, UAE and many other countries have made India their product sell­ing point and they enormous­ly export their goods, but the sad state in India is that there is lack of awareness about exporting and most of the youngsters in the rural areas are migrating to urban ar­eas. Today there are various schemes offered by the cen­tral and state governments that would benefit the entre­preneurs and start-ups. VTPC is a catalyst to fill the gap and benefit the manufacturers and exporters by providing them with necessary information,” he added. President of MCCI, Satish, Varadarajan, Vice President of MCCI, Jayanth, Joint director of District In­dustries Centre, Ramachan­dre Gowda, Ramanna and C M Subramanian were present.
