you are going from this end to another with what, i don't understand what you want to say.

there is two criteria to look into something:
1. playing with figures like you just did (one of the bad things people are taught by politics)
2. measuring figures from economic point of view instead of political

it is easy to say 50% growth, but of what? if it is 50% of a billion or a two, it is not something considerable. well if it was 50% of something considerable, we say ok we are doing good.

there is something that is called economics.
we must understand that we lack in every aspect when we talk about economy, we need to improve at management, execution, marketing, administration level, simplifying regulations, improving cooperation among sectors, combining short term & long term export policies above all sustainability.

bring as much investment as you want, until we do not improve on those things we will never be able to professionally run and be competitive in the world.

regional countries who were doing their efforts years back we have to study them how they attain this level and stand where they are now but we were sleeping. now when we have started which i am hearing since 10 years, why are we still at 2 billion mark which is just achieved?

we also learn to continue policies good for the country of the earlier govt by the current without any prejudice, we will start developing.

regardless of who in the govt, i have no interest in politics and give a damn when it is dirty, i have my own reservations towards country.
well explained, which some blind people will never understand.

Let the exports grow first. 2bn USD a year is nothing in the larger scheme of things.

For comparison, Tencent 2020 revenue was 482bn Yuan / 74bn USD in 2020.

A near 50% year on year increase of any figure is a tremendous achievement. Admittedly we are starting from a low base but the momentum appears to have been maintained as a couple of years ago exports were at around $1b. Once the SEZ are up and running we will see the true potential of IT exports.

More than 80% of IT services providers r tax exempt… there is zero tax on it including free lancing (foreign income) tu 2BN he hoge na actual may 22-15B or maybe more than that..
The $2b export figure does not include freelancing.
