Commerce secretary Rahul Khullar has said that the exports and imports may touch about $300 billion and $460 billion, respectively. The balance of trade would be around $160 billion.

He has also cautioned that the exporters' community would face demand problem in 2012-13 as well.

FIEO President Rafeeque Ahmed said the figures clearly indicate that 2012 would be a difficult year for exports in view of growing uncertainty in the euro-zone area, slacking of demand in other advance economies and third country effect on India's exports to emerging economies.
