a Seminar on  ‘Opportunities in Agri-Food Exports’
Agri. Exports: India is becoming a major player in the global Agriculture Market. Over the years India has developed export competitiveness in certain specialized products, making it the world’s 14th largest agricultural, fishery, and forestry product exporter. In 2016, India accrued a $3.8 billion trade surplus of agricultural, fishery, and forestry goods. Leading exports consisted of Basmati rice, beef/meat of bovine animals, frozen shrimp and prawns, cotton and refined sugar. Agricultural exports from India grew 18 per cent to $21 billion in the April-October 2017-18 period compared to just 5 per cent in 2016-17 as per the Govt. statistics.

Indian Govt. wants to boost exports by identifying new markets and niche products and very soon the ‘Agricultural Export Policy’ will be announced. Export of Agricultural produce must touch around $60 billion by 2020 (double from the 2015 level) to help double farmers’ income. Exports can be increased largely by focusing on value addition and bringing down wastage through pre and post-harvest Processing. The Indian food industry is poised for huge growth, increasing its contribution to world food trade every year due to its immense potential for value addition, particularly within the food processing industry.
