NEW DELHI: The Commerce Ministry is looking at measures to be announced as part of the review of the foreign trade policy (FTP) to boost exports, Commerce Secretary Rita Teaotia said recently.

She said that the review of the policy is now almost coming to its logical conclusion and the exercise will be completed by September. "We are looking to see what are those measures by which we can actively support the exporting community," she said here.

The Secretary said although Indian exporters continue to participate in international events, organising a big show in India would give a large platform to domestic players to interact directly with global buyers.

About 400 participants from 35 countries are expected to participate in the two-day show starting from January 18 next year. The Trade Promotion Council of India (TPCI) is organising this show with the Ministry.
