Gujarat has emerged as a top performer in the Niti Aayog report named 'Export Preparedness Index (EPI)', in association with the Institute of Competitiveness. 

This edition has shown that most of the ‘Coastal States’ are the best performers, with Gujarat at the top. The report is a comprehensive analysis of India’s export achievements. 

The EPI ranks states and UTs on 4 main pillars—policy; business ecosystem; export ecosystem, according to the Niti Ayog. 

The EPI’s primary goal is to instil competition among all Indian states to bring about favourable export-promotion policies, ease the regulatory framework to prompt subnational export promotion, create the necessary infrastructure for exports. 

While releasing the report, Niti Aayog Vice-Chairman Dr Rajiv Kumar remarked that EPI 2021 will help the states and UTs in a long way to plan and execute sound export-oriented policies for ensuring a conducive export ecosystem, to make maximum utilization of their export potential.

Amitabh Kant, CEO, Niti Aayog said that the second edition of the index will be a significant catalyst for promoting competitive federalism and a fair contest among states and UTs in the global export landscape.
