Thaver said to increase exports it is imperative to open non-traditional markets and non-traditional goods besides gearing up existing markets and goods and for this it is very important that national export credit guarantee insurance is required at low premium. This will enable the banks to become comfortable and finance the SMEs exports to third world countries. The banks decline discounting of export bills to third world countries because of low rating of banks in these countries and also sometimes the buyers are also SMEs.

The other important requirements of the sector are financing under ‘Pay as you earn schemes’ , filling of the technological gap, facilitating modernization and strengthening the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) to enable it to outreach the sector and uplift it.
