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.
