The Synthetic & Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) has welcomed the Outreach Programme launched by the minister recently.
"This innovative initiative of the government will be helpful for the stakeholders from all corners of India to participate and directly convey their concerns to the ministry. It will also be helpful to establish a dialogue between the government and the industry," SRTEPC chairman Narain Aggarwal stated.

The government is positive to consider export credit in the category of priority sector lending. Another initiative taken by the government is to improve the logistics of the country for facilitating greater trade.
The initiatives taken by the government such as Make in India, Ease of Investment, Government -e - Marketing (GeM), establishment of two mega convention centres, setting up of standards, start dialogue with EU for concluding India – EU FTA, working with WTO, research inputs from IIFT & IIM, etc. were also highlighted by the Minister.
