Logo Design Contest for Districts as Export Hubs Concludes
Districts as Export Hubs is an initiative of Department of Commerce which is being implemented by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) in collaboration with DPIIT, other divisions of Department of Commerce, State/UT Governments and all the Districts in the country.
The “Districts as Export Hubs” initiative would utilize the institutional mechanism (District Export Promotion Committees) created under this initiative to enable handholding and assistance of exporters by doorstep delivery of timely and relevant information. The small exporters/ MSMEs from the District will get benefit of export opportunities in the overseas markets. The outreach activities, trade fairs, buyer-seller meets etc. under the initiative will provide exporters with platforms for wide and global reach of products and services from the district through E-commerce and Digital marketing. It is expected to provide the exporters and entrepreneurs from the district an ecosystem for Innovation/ use of Technology at District level to make them export competitive. It may also reduce the transaction cost for the exporter at various stages of export cycle. Under this initiative, the products/services from the districts with export potential have been identified and detailed export action plans are being prepared with focus on export promotion, manufacturing, investment, employment generation through export growth from the districts.
A Logo Design Contest for Districts as Export Hubs was hosted on MyGov Platform from 15th February 2021 to 10th March 2021. The valid entries received were evaluated by a duly constituted Jury and after much deliberation, it was decided that none of the entries fulfilled the evaluation criteria required for the award of a prize.
