Union Minister Urges Expansion of Exports to Bangladesh via Tripura


Union Minister Anupriya Patel, the Minister of State for Commerce and Industries, has called upon government officials to bolster the export of goods to Bangladesh through the state of Tripura. During her two-day visit to Tripura, Patel met with Chief Minister Manik Saha on September 12 to discuss strategies for augmenting cross-border trade.

A pivotal meeting was held with District Magistrate Vishal Kumar of Sepahijala district, along with other key officials, including the Director of Industries and Commerce, Vishwasree B, and senior representatives. The gathering was convened to scrutinize ongoing development projects and assess the potential for increased exports to Bangladesh.

Vishal Kumar affirmed, “We had a discussion on development projects and export-related issues with the Union Minister. She laid emphasis on increasing bilateral trade with the neighboring country by creating required facilities.” The emphasis on infrastructural augmentation underlines the government’s commitment to fortify trade routes and logistical support between Tripura and Bangladesh.

One of the key points of focus during the deliberations was the value addition to rubber, given the abundant natural rubber resources in the northeastern state. Minister Patel underscored the potential for leveraging this valuable resource to enhance the region’s export capabilities.

The push for expanding exports to Bangladesh through Tripura aligns with the broader vision of strengthening economic ties and fostering greater cooperation between India and its neighbors. It is anticipated that the concerted efforts of government officials, in conjunction with the directives of Union Minister Anupriya Patel, will yield substantial progress in this endeavor, ushering in a new era of economic prosperity for the region.
