NCDC Promotes COOPEXCIL

Co-operative Sector Exports Promotion Council (COOPEXCIL), with dedicated focus on exports by cooperatives, would be formed by NCDC as an NCDC promoted activity.

According to sources, the new entity will be headed by the Managing Director, NCDC with members from various sectors and stakeholders.

The COOPEXICIL will have representation from NCDC, TRIFED, NAFED, IFFCO, FISHCOFED, SUGARFED, AIFCOSPIN, IPL, MARKFEDs, State Governments, and various Ministries.

The sources said the decision follows the proactive action of NCDC Managing Director Sundeep Kumar Nayak.

With this the NCDC has taken lead in forming such an organization in order to provide an impetus to agricultural exports, as the Union Government has formulated an Agriculture Export Policy (AEP), aiming to double the agricultural exports and integrate farmers and agricultural products with the global value chains to have much higher growth, the sources added.

The cooperative sector, which encompasses almost all production systems and all commodities, has made significant progress in agriculture and allied sectors but have inadequate representation in export promotion bodies and export activities performed by different organizations.

In order to boost exports through co-operatives in tune with the Agri-Exports Policy setting up a platform for exports by cooperatives is sine qua non and is deemed appropriate to address export related issues the cooperative sector and various stakeholders;

Accordingly the Board of Management of NCDC took the decision at its recent meeting to set up "Co-operative Sector Exports Promotion Council" (COOPEXCIL).

COOPEXCIL will perform the promotion and development of cooperatives functions mandated under the NCDC Act and to provide commercially useful information and assistance to cooperatives in developing and increasing their exports.

It will offer professional advice to cooperatives in areas such as technology up-gradation, quality and design improvement, standards and specifications, product development, innovation, etc.

COOPEXICIL will organize visits of delegations abroad to explore overseas market opportunities and organize participation in trade fairs, exhibitions and buyer-seller meets in India and abroad; as well as promote interaction between the cooperative exporting community and the Government both at the Central and State.

T Prasad Rao Dora, Chairman FISHCOFED has lauded the efforts of NCDC in forming such an Organization to promote exports from Cooperative Sector.

Mr.Dora said this was a long standing requirement of the cooperative sector and under dynamic leadership of Mr.Nayak it will scale new heights
