The initiative will concentrate on attracting more international students into the country and doubling India’s market share of global education exports industry to 2%.

Among its other objectives, the initiative seeks to improve the overall quality of higher education and see international student spending increase.

The budget will cover brand promotion and activities until 2020.

As per reports, the main focus will be on neighbouring countries. About 13 of 35 target countries are in West Asia, but the list includes ASEAN and SAARC countries together with Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia and China among others, according to reports
