Walmart To Triple Exports Of India-Made Goods To $10bn Per Year By 2027

Walmart Inc has said that it will triple its exports of India-made goods to $10 billion each year by 2027 in a move that will help expand the global reach of goods from the South Asian nation.

India is already among Walmart's top sourcing markets for products such as jewellery and homeware, with annual exports of about $3 billion.

"By significantly accelerating our annual India exports in the coming years, we are supporting the Make in India initiative and helping more local businesses reach international customers, while creating jobs and prosperity at home in India," Walmart's chief executive officer Doug McMillon said in a statement.

The Biggest Deal

Bentonville, Arkansas-headquartered Walmart acquired about 77% of Indian e-commerce firm Flipkart for roughly $16 billion in 2018, marking the biggest deal for India's e-commerce sector where it competes with its US rival Amazon.com Inc's local unit.

Earlier this year, Bengaluru-based Flipkart bought the US retail giant's wholesale business in India.

On Thursday, Walmart said its commitment to deeper sourcing from India will include helping develop hundreds of new suppliers across categories such as food, pharmaceuticals, consumables and apparel.
