Export Facilitation Centre (EFC), West Bengal is expected to play a critical role in supporting the existing exporters as well as the prospective exporters through assistance counselling in the matter of

1. Identify markets for your company’s products
2. Developing an export plan
3. Financing export transactions
4. Methods of handling orders and shipments
5. Trade fair participation
6. Sourcing of input material for exportable product manufacturing
7. Locating the freight forwarders
8. Letter of credit procedure
9. Customs procedure
10. Tariff obligation while exporting

The EFC, therefore, will be a vital tool for allowing the West Bengal exporter sail through the uncertainties of trade in particular and world macro-economic situation as a whole.
