Trade related issues between North-Eastern State & Bangladesh discussed
New Delhi, May 14 (KNN) Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Riva Ganguly Das met Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and discussed connectivity and trade-related issues between the north-eastern State and Bangladesh.
“We have discussed trade and connectivity-related issues and projects. Tripura has a significant role in increasing trade and improve connectivity between India and Bangladesh,” the Indian envoy told reporters after the meeting with the Chief Minister.
She said the number of ‘border haats’ (markets) in Tripura would be doubled from two. In the border haats, vendors from India and Bangladesh are allowed to sell local produce without any kind of duty or tax.
“We also discussed ways to further improve people-to-people contacts. The ongoing connectivity projects will take some time,” said Das, who took charge as High Commissioner of India to Bangladesh in March.
