Clothing & carpets excluded from export priority list
Sep '10
At one point of time, the country's exports largely comprised of garments and carpets, however, these products have not been able to find a place amongst the 19 products that have been recently categorized as having the highest export potential for the purpose of prioritizing.

Seven agro-based products, five industrial items and seven service sectors have been picked by Nepal Trade Integrity Strategy (NTIS) 2010 as key export items. However, experts say that, deciding on a new list of items is really encouraging, but then the government should have considered the items, which constituted the list earlier.

Both, clothing and carpets, were earlier included in the government's priority list, and exclusion of the same now, is like passing a wrong message to the exporters and importers, they said.

According to the experts, the government should shed light on the process followed, while categorising the new list and the basis for inclusion of new products and should even explain, as to why the old products have been de-listed.

Experts even say that, this time the government has made lapses in perfectly monitoring and following the process recommended for identification of products for prioritizing exports.

The 19 products identified by the NTIS for inclusion in the priority list include — large cardamom, ginger, honey, lentils, tea, noodles, medicinal and essential oils, handmade paper, silver jewellery, iron and steel, Pashmina and wool products.
