India to host Dubai-like mega shop fests to boost exports
NEW DELHI: As part of the steps taken to boost exports, India will organise annual mega shop festivals, similar to the ones held in Dubai, to facilitate exchange between global producers and consumers, finance minister Nirm Sitharn said on Saturday.
She said that these "mega shop festivals" will be held at four destinations across the country and their themes will vary from gems and jewellery, textiles and leather to yoga, among others.
The finance minister also announced a new scheme - Remission of Duties or Taxes on Export Product (RoDTEP) - to incentivise exporters at an estimated cost of Rs 50,000 crore.
India's merchandise exports declined by 6.05 per cent to $26.13 billion in August compared to $27.81 billion reported in the corresponding period of the previous year.

The Hindutva swindled 20K crore for Ganga cleanup and ganga is still as filthy, and all this money they say spending for economy will again go into their corrupt coffers to finance mega ions and to pay for mass propaganda

This shows bankruptcy of ideas as finance minister, Dubai shop festival now a failed model, what discounts Indian are getting in this festival more than double discounts offering by flip kart and Amazon. I think Modiji should immediate replace this lady otherwise she will do more dge to economy.

Gobarment is clueless on how to triple the export in 5 years when it has been going down.
The only thing we export is IT manpower and that business is still good.

DSF is about attracting tourists to Dubai and boost their sales but Dubai also sells its infrastructure and tourist attractions also. What India has to offer the moment one comes out of the airport..? Need not to elaborate...!
