APEDA inks MoUs for implementation of AEP

apeda-inks-mous-for-implementation-of-aepThe Agricultural and Processed Food Export Development Authority (APEDA) has been focusing on a collaborative approach to bring synergy with number of organisations and institutions having inherent professional and specialised expertise in different areas for capacity building of various stakeholders and providing solutions for addressing some of the identified interventions for the development of agriculture and its export enhancement in consonance with the objectives set under the Agri Export Policy (AEP) announced by the Government of India, according to a statement issued recently by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
The AEP was framed with a focus on agriculture-export oriented production, export promotion, better price realisation to farmer and synchronisation within policies and programmes of the Government of India. It focusses on a farmer-centric approach for improved income through value addition at source itself to help minimise losses across the value chain. Policy, therefore, suggests to adopt the approach of developing product specific clusters in different agro climatic zones of the country to help in dealing with various supply side issues, viz., soil nutrients management, higher productivity, adoption of market-oriented variety of crop, use of good agriculture practices, etc.
APEDA has been engaged with state governments for the implementation of AEP. The states of Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Nagaland, Tamil Nadu, Assam, Punjab, Karnataka, Gujarat and Rajasthan have finalised the State-specific Action Plan, while the action plans of other states are at different stages of finalisation. Twenty-six states and two UTs (Union Territories) have nominated nodal agencies. State-level monitoring committees under the chairmanship of the state chief secretaries have been formed in 18 States.
Thirteen cluster-level committees have been formed in the cluster district(s) for potatoes in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh (two separate districts), Isabgol in Rajasthan, orange, pomegranate and grapes in Maharashtra, bananas in Tamil Nadu, mangoes in Uttar Pradesh, dairy products in Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh, rose onion in Karnataka and fresh vegetables in Uttar Pradesh.
