The export promotion bureau of UP has prepared a plan to boost export in these 26 countries of Europe, the Middle East and Africa. These countries have great potential for export of toys, clothes, leather items, carpets, electronic items, furniture and various other products from UP.

According to the official spokesperson, UP is the fifth largest exporting state in the list of countries. However, its exports are mainly to 10 big countries including the US, UK and a few gulf countries. To boost exports from UP, the export promotion bureau has identified countries such as Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Morocco, Poland, Sweden, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, Qatar, Oman, Australia, Bangladesh, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan. Officials of the bureau said that UP exports nominal items to these countries and now a special drive would be launched to boost it. According to them, the products made under the one district one product (ODOP) could play a major role in boosting export to these countries.

The officials of the export promotion bureau said that the UP government would find trade agents in these countries to reach potential buyers. The products made in UP would be displayed in these countries through special fairs and exhibitions. The buyers from these countries would be invited in UP to attend trade fairs and conventions. Besides the help of Indian embassies in these countries would also be taken to reach to potential buyers. The UP government has decided to approach the union foreign affairs ministry and seek its help in establishing contact with the international trade bodies. The artisans and manufacturers of traditional items from UP would be encouraged to participate in international exhibitions and display their products.
