Speaking on the launch, Vishakha Mulye, Executive Director of ICICI Bank said, “Over the years, India has emerged as a key player in the global export-import space with a consistent growth history. Various factors, the country’s young demography, strong consumer demand, healthy production, and supportive government initiatives – have contributed to the growth. During April to October 2021, our overall exports (merchandise and services combined) and imports are estimated to be nearly USD 780 billion, recording a rapid growth over the same period last year.”

“The ‘Trade Emerge’ portal offers a comprehensive digital suite of various banking and value-added services to the companies engaged in export and import,” the statement said.

“The objective of this initiative is to increase efficiency and productivity of exporters and importers decongesting the time-taking physical procedures,” Bank added.

Adding to the statement, ICICI Bank further said, “This is a part of the Bank’s endeavor to offer customized digital banking as well as value-added solutions to corporates, and their entire ecosystem through various initiatives. The benefit of this platform is available to all exporters and importers, even if they are not customers of ICICI Bank.”
