Mission: To facilitate awareness of India's business community in a way that enhances India's international trade
About us: Exim Bank, established by an Act of Parliament, 1981 has been the purveyor of export credit providing financial assistance to exporters and importers, and has been acting as a principal financial institution facilitating India’s international trade. With a view to promoting the country’s trade and for matters connected therewith, Exim Bank has envisioned creation of an online platform. This online platform has been christened as “EXIM Mitra”, meaning a ‘friend for exporter and importer’. The platform endeavors to fulfill twin objectives, namely delivery of trade-related information and facilitation of access to credit and insurance for exporters and importers. Taking cognizance of the existing information asymmetry amongst a large number of exporters and importers, Exim Bank has made an effort to create “EXIM Mitra” as a facility to ascertain potential global markets and products, understand product standards across the globe, estimate freight cost, credit insurance, identify agencies providing handholding, amongst a host of value added services. The platform has also devised an online format to facilitate a prospective exporter and importer explore funding opportunities on the basis of the merits of the case.
This portal also envisages financial inclusion by delivering information and facilitating financial services.
