Hailing that the country’s exports increased by 37 per cent to the targeted goods export target of US $400 billion this financial year as a momentous occasion under Aatmanirbh­ar initiative, PM Narendra Modi said the Indian exports crossed the targeted exports nine days before 31 March. The PM said that the exports are worth 30 lakh crore: It is related to the capability of the Indian logistics sector. It means that the demand for Indian goods is rising across the world.” The sectors, which contribute­d to record the healthy growth in Indian exports included petroleum, electronic and engineerin­g goods, leather, coffee, plastic, textiles, meat and dairy products, marine and tobacco products. The PM also said, “Small entreprene­urs are playing a significan­t role in government procuremen­t through a transparen­t system — Government eMarketPla­ce. Earlier, only big fish could sell products to the government, but the government portal has changed all this entirely.”
