The paper suggests for increasing the flow of bank credit to export sector, restructuring the interest rates. It also calls for a change in the attitudes of banks conservative and risk avers. The need for coordination between banks and financial institutions, role of EIGC in timely settlement of claims are impetus for a favorable export business. The stress is on introducing the new innovative services of counter trade, overseas borrowings, international factoring and banker’s acceptance for accelerating promotion of exports.
