A new era of trade activities between North East and Bangladesh appears to be opening up soon if the Dhaka trip of the high-level Indian business delegation, led by MP and former Union Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar succeeds.
The delegation, which also includes former MP from Arunachal Pradesh Kiren Rijiju, is leaving for Bangladesh today on a four-day business trip with the sole objective of boosting trade ties between the neighbours, reported UNI.
According to official sources, the delegation would be focusing mainly on trade between the two nations with many more landmark agreements expected to be signed.
One of the core areas of discussion would be export-import from North East India with Bangladesh and market access to products of both countries.
Rijiju would emphasise on market access for agri-horti cultural products from Arunachal and future linkages which would be pushed through with formal agreement between the trade bodies from both sides.
Soon after landing the delegates would hold a meeting with the members of India Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce (IBCC) for business discussion and meet Bangladesh Commerce Minister Md Faruk Khan the next day.
Talks with business tycoons would take place at Nitol centre the same day. The team would then proceed to meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina followed by a meeting with Chitagong Chamber of Commerce & Industry at Chittagong on July 13.
Signing of agreements and declaration of business meet would take place before they depart on July 14, sources added.
