The Goverment of India has decided to fundamentally revise its SEZ Act. In this context, the Export Promotion Council for Export Oriented Units & Special Economic Zones (EPCES) of India has set up a committee to make recommendations to the government. Project member Prof. Aradhna Aggarwal has been nominated as a member of this committee and started the advisory work.
The EPCES is one of fourteen export promotion councils operating in India. These councils are non-profit organisation under the administrative control of the Ministry of Commerce and serve as a bridge between the government on the one hand and exporters on the other. The primary objective of EPCES is to promote exports through SEZs and EOUs (Export Oriented Units).
