Finally, 35,000 overseas importers as well as Directory of Harmonised Classification (HS ITS Code) group-wise have been incorporated in the CD-ROM for the benefit of the trading community. Periodic updates of the CD-ROM are on the cards. As the next step, NCTI is involved in the compilation of a CD-ROM of country profiles.

NCTI has the competence of compiling value added reports on the basis of raw data, both Indian trade statistics as well as international/global trade statistics. A recent example of this has been in terms of the following three reports submitted to MOC:-

(i) “Sport Goods”:

Global Imports (1992-1196)

Exports from India (1990-91 to 1996-97)

Statistical analysis and trends for top 15 countries

(ii) “Leather Goods”:

Global Imports (1992-1996)

Exports from India (1990-91 to 1996-97)

Statistical analysis and trends for top 15 countries

(iii) “Sports Goods”:

Analysis of Basket of Sports Goods Exported from India to USA (1996-97) and Imported into USA from rest of the World (1996) In respect of point no. 1 above, NCTI attempts to reach the small and medium enterprise for doing international business, without having to in­vest in any elaborated infrastructure abroad.

In this respect, NCTI is also pursuing a proposal with the Ministry of Commerce, to implement the ben­efits of EDI, electronic commerce and the internet for the small and medium enterprises in the State of UP for the leather exporting industry. This would be a pilot project, which after completion, would be replicated across other key sectors and regions of the country.

NCTI also compiles a quarterly journal, “Trade Connect” meant for overseas circulation. This Journal tries to assimilate all the positive aspects of the Indian economy for the benefit of India’s partners abroad.
