 As per comtrade, 2009, share of India in export of agricultural products in the international market accounts for 1.8%.  

 

 Encouraging exports is a continuous process.  The Government encourages exports of agro products through measures and incentives under Plan schemes of the Commodity Boards, Development Authorities and Export Promotion Councils. The Government also encourages such exports   through various other schemes like Market Development Assistance (MDA), Market Assistance Initiative (MAI), Assistance to States for Developing Export Infrastructure and Allied Activities (ASIDE), Vishesh Krishi and Gram Upaj Yojana, Focus Product Scheme, Focus Market Scheme, Town of Export Excellence, etc. Trade delegations are also mounted to penetrate foreign markets and Buyer–Seller Meets are organized to assist the potential exports.  

 

This information was given by Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia  Minister of State for Commerce and Industry  in written reply to a question in  Rajya  Sabha today.
