Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik announced that a new Odisha Export Policy, 2017 would be announced soon.

Bhubaneswar:21/9/17; Encouraged over the high growth rate of exports in the state, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today announced that a new Odisha Export Policy, 2017 would be announced soon.

Patnaik said this while inaugurating a workshop on ‘Export Strategy of Odisha’ here. Besides, in order to ensure “ease of doing business” to exporters, the state is in process of accommodating all export related organisations under a single roof, Patnaik said.

Stating that these steps will go a long way in enhancing value of exports from Odisha, Patnaik said the state had registered a significant growth in the field of exports since 2001-02. The export turnover of Odisha which was merely Rs 5063 crore in 2001-02, had increased 34 times to Rs 19082 crore in 2015-16. “It is heartening to note that because of collective efforts of our exporters, the value of exports between 2015-16 and 2016-17 has registered a phenomenal growth of 114 per cent from Rs 19,082 crore to Rs 40,872 crore,” Patnain said. Odisha’s MSME Minister Prafulla Samal said the state had been continuously increasing for the last few years and it was a good indication for the export trade in future. He also called upon the exporters of Odisha to involve more and more in the overseas trade and tap the maximum export potential of the state.

MSME Additional Chief Secretary L N Gupta stressed on development of export infrastructure of the state to bridge the gap of logistic support that the state required. A ‘Raptani Bhavan’ is going to be set up very shortly to provide single window facilities to the exporters in Odisha.
