The “Trade Connect ePlatform” is an upcoming digital initiative announced in January 2024 by Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal. It aims to boost the involvement of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) as well as startups in the export sector. The platform, expected to be operational in the next three to four months, will act as an intermediary connecting Indian exporters and entrepreneurs with various stakeholders in international trade. The primary goal is to bridge the information gap for MSME traders, providing them with crucial details and opportunities for export activities. This initiative is part of a broader effort to review export performance, with the ambitious target of achieving USD 2 trillion in exports by 2030. The platform is set to play a significant role in promoting exports, enhancing product quality, and boosting the economy through increased involvement of small and medium traders in the global market.
