The Odisha state government has asked various departments to set up export promotion councils on various products including textiles, handlooms and handicrafts. To boost the state's export potential, the government is also considering setting up of Raptani Bhawan, showcasing exportable products of the state in prominent cities of India and abroad.

The decision to set up export promotion councils was taken at the first empowered committee meeting constituted for guiding and monitoring implementation of the Odisha export promotion policy. The meeting chaired by chief secretary AP Padhi directed various departments including textile, handloom and handicraft, to set up the councils in their respective department offices in Bhubaneshwar, an official statement said.

The meeting also discussed setting up of Raptani Bhawan, implementation of a new state assistance scheme for creation of export infrastructure, and supply of raw material to exporters through Odisha Small Industries Corporation.

Other issues like waiver of entry tax on silk products, and adoption of organic farming were also discussed in the meeting.

Odisha exported goods valued at Rs 17,346 crore in fiscal 2015-16, and the state has set a target to achieve Rs 21,559 crore in export value for the current year. (RKS)
