AHMEDABAD: The Union Minister for Commerce & Industry and Civil Aviation Suresh Prabhu recently inaugurated new office of the Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) in Ahmedabad.
Addressing exporters, the Minister stated that the Government is ensuring exporters and tackling the GST issues. He stressed upon promoting the merchant export as it is linked with small-scale industries. The Minister said despite the challenging time in global trade, India’s exports are growing.
"Gujarat is a hub for entrepreneurs and business, the FIEO office here aims to support the industrial and entrepreneurial growth, which will bring us closer to our aim of $5 trillion economy in next 7-8 years," he added.
Prabhu also said that if India wants to achieve double-digit growth then every district must contribute in the growth story. "We have to adopt bottom-up concept and ensure that every district’s growth must be increased by 3 to 4 per cent than its current growth rate," he added.
