about FIEO

The Federation of Indian Export Organisations, popularly known as FIEO, is the apex body of all export promotion organizations in India. Ever since set up by the Ministry of Commerce, Government of India, in 1965, FIEO has been serving as a platform for promoting Indian trade with the World and also has been serving as a platform of interaction between exporters and policymakers. Thus, FIEO represents the Indian export promotion effort in its entirety.

Academia and Industry are two different worlds which are operating in isolation, both unaware of requirements of each other. Considering the dynamic changing business environment and a increase in demand for skilled and industry ready professionals, there is a need for a professional course that imparts both theoretical concepts and practical knowhow. PGP-FTM Program has been developed to achieve this objective.
