The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) was set up in 1963 by the Government of India (Ministry of Commerce and Industry) as an autonomous organization to help professionalize the country's foreign trade management and increase exports by developing human resources, analyzing and disseminating data and conducting research. IIFT started out as a center to provide foreign trade advice to government bodies and has since played an instrumental role in conducting research in trade policy formulation. In recognition of its rich contributions, IIFT was conferred the status of Deemed to be University in 2002.
