Bangladesh wants to export goods to Manipur

Bangladesh is interested in exporting furniture, medicines, garments and food items to Manipur to boost trade ties with India.

"Bangladesh has achieved a good position in trade across the world including India. If bilateral trade with Manipur is increased both Bangladesh and India will be benefitted," Bangladeshi Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed said during a recent meeting with visiting Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh at his office, the BSS news agency has reported.

Tofail Ahmed said that while India has offered Bangladesh duty and quota free market access for all products except drugs and arms to reduce the trade gap, countervailing duties are hampering Bangladesh's trade with India in some areas. He hoped that the issue could be solved through negotiations.

Chief Minister Ibobi Singh said there is a huge demand of Bangladeshi products in Manipur and if products are imported from Bangladesh the people of Manipur will get quality goods. He urged business people of the two countries to come forward to make such trade possible.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) and Manipur Chamber aiming at increasing the trade between Bangladesh and Manipur. (SH)
