FICCI says India should maintain stimulus for exports

The Indian Government should continue with the stimulus package for exports and areas that still need support, although the industry should not expect them to continue in perpetuity, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry President Rajan Bharti Mittal said on Tuesday. Exports were hit hard by the global economic meltdown about 18 months ago and have only just started showing signs of recovery last November, registering a growth of 18 percent.
