India achieves highest ever $400 billion goods export target ahead of the end of FY22

New Delhi/IBNS: India hit the $400 billion export mark on Wednesday, a target it had set for for FY22.

Asia's third largest economy achieved the target nine days ahead of the end of the financial year. 

In the April-December period the figure stood at about $300 billion.

"India set an ambitious target of $400 Billion of goods exports and achieves this target for the first time ever. I congratulate our farmers, weavers, MSMEs, manufacturers, exporters for this success. This is a key milestone in our Aatmanirbhar Bharat journey," Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted.

In a reply during the question hour in Lok Sabha in February, Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal said, "For 10th month in a row, April 2021 to January 2022, India has posted over USD 30 billion of exports. It is a record, we have already crossed USD 334 billion of exports which is more than the highest ever that India has done in full 12 months period.. We are well on track to achieve USD 400 billion of exports.”

A range of measures, chosen specifically to maximise export earnings and establish dominance in key markets, have been pushed by the Commerce Department in the current fiscal year.
