I do not think that modern economy is that simple.
If you ban exports then the producers will lose motivation to produce.

Itz possible to simplify the economics so easily.
Finally one has to ensure adequate FE for the imports too otherwise, it will reflect on FE rates in turn on fuel price and all other prices including food & other commodities. Such moves are like reinventing the wheel at very high cost.
