BSE signs MoU with Federation of Indian Export Organisations

Mumbai, September 17th 2018: BSE has signed a MoU with the Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) to create awareness about the benefits of commodity/derivatives market and encourage commodity stakeholders to hedge on exchange. MoU was signed on September 12, 2018. BSE and FIEO will be collaborating together for the growth and development of the value chain participants and enable them to face competition and manage price risk better.

As a part of this MoU, BSE will share its knowledge and expertise to educate exporters about listing and fund raising options through BSE platform. BSE and FIEO would be organizing awareness sessions at various clusters across India on the subject and also on currency and commodity strategies and related topics. Both the entities have made significant progress in their respective areas for the growth and development of the commodities market and then decided to enter into the MoU to mutually share their knowledge.

On this occasion, Shri Ashishkumar Chauhan, MD & CEO, BSE said, “The awareness about the benefits of listing on Commodity exchange is very less. BSE will partner with FIEO to devise curriculum on financial markets starting with commodities, currencies and equities. Training will be imparted to the participants at various long term and short term courses on international business that will be run by FIEO from time to time across the country under the joint certification programmes by BSE and FIEO.”

Shri Khalid Khan (Regional Chairman – FIEO, WR) said, “FIEO and BSE Ltd will jointly organise training activities on international business and financial markets. This will result in creation of competent and deserving human resource for international business. Currently volatility in exchange rates and fund raising is a major concern for any exporter and signing of MoU at this juncture will definitely support trade significantly.”
