NEW DELHI: Commerce and industry minister Piyush Goyal on Wednesday exuded confidence that during this fiscal, the country will maintain the last year‘s export figures despite slowdown in global trade. He said that India’s exports of goods & services rose to $776 billion in 2022-23 from $500 billion two years ago.
“Globally growth has been negative, international trade is in the negative territory, estimates are that this year international trade may fall, and in that perspective after having grown so rapidly we are looking at a phase of consolidation…and I expect that in the current year, we will maintain our figures of last year and strengthen our processes and our capacities, capabilities to be able to grow at much faster rates,” Goyal told reporters here.
Cumulatively, the country’s merchandise exports in April-November 2023-24 contracted by 6.5% to $278.8 billion. The estimated value of services export during the eight-month period stood at $220.7 billion.
