Hon’ble Prime Minister in his Independence Day speech on 15th August, 2019 highlighted the need to channelize the unique potential of each District of the country and convert them into export hubs. Taking his vision forward, Department of Commerce through DGFT launched the “Districts as Export Hubs” initiative and since then has been working with the States/UTs and the districts directly to create institutional mechanisms for facilitating exports of identified products/services from the Districts.
Under the ‘Districts as Export Hubs Initiative’, products and services (including GI products, agricultural clusters, toy clusters etc.) with export potential have been identified in all districts of the country in consultation with the stakeholders including the States/UTs. The list of such identified products and services gets updated regularly on the basis of inputs received from the States/UTs. Districts Export Action Plans are being prepared for identified products and services for overseas markets, which includes specific actions required to support local exporters / manufacturers in producing/manufacturing identified products in adequate quantity and requisite quality, for reaching potential buyers outside India. These plans also include identifying and addressing challenges for exports of such identified products/services, improving supply chains, market accessibility and handholding for increasing exports.
