India’s exports could rise as much as a fifth in the current fiscal year ending March 2019 to reach about $350 billion, a leading trade body said.

The Federation of India’s Export Organisations, FIEO, also hopes India will actively engage with the United States to protect local industry’s interest, said Ganesh Gupta, president, FIEO.

A move by the central bank to ban trade credit instruments such as letters of undertaking and letters of comfort after a $2-billion fraud at a state-run bank has raised the cost of funds for exporters by 1 percent to 3 percent, Gupta added.
