Working with states individually to meet their needs on improving EODB will benefit India: Prabhu

New Delhi: Commerce and Industry Minister Suresh Prabhu on Thursday said that working with the states individually to meet their needs on improving Ease of Doing Business in India will benefit the country more rather than just focusing at macro level. Mr Prabhu called upon states and UTs to explore all possible ways of tapping into the global value and supply chain by promoting the export of services, organic agricultural produce, in corporate value addition to agricultural products and fully utilise all the schemes and programmes of the Centre. ''This will not only add to the GDP of the country but will also create greater employment,'' said Mr Prabhu, who chaired the fourth meeting of the Council for Trade Development and Promotion (CTDP) here. Briefing reporters after the meeting, he said, ''We are thinking about transport subsidy to states for promotion of agricultural products. '' The Minister said that all states and UTs must formulate an export strategy which is state specific and product specific and improve logistics and infrastructure in their region.
