“The Government of India released the “Foreign Trade Policy Statement 2017-Mid-term Review” document on 5 December 2017. Though it was intended to be a “taking stock” kind of a document, the Foreign Trade Policy (‘FTP’) Statement 2017 is a comprehensive overhaul of India’s FTP from the perspective of building India’s export competitiveness and devising strategies for market access and penetration. The mid-term review document not only presents a vision document on how India can become a significant participant in world trade but also enables it to assume a position of leadership in international trade

For the purpose of this update we have structured the Policy announcements into following categories:

  • Strategic measures to enhance India’s export competitiveness;
  • Measures for promotion of goods exports; 
  • Measures for promotion of services exports; and
  • Other key export promotion measures”

We, at BDO India have summarised the key aspects of FTP mid-term review document. We hope you find it useful.
