Bangladesh has withdrawn port restrictions on 27 goods from the northeastern Indian state of Tripura, say sources in the Department of Industry and Commerce.
The goods include: raw rubber, broomsticks, bamboo products, CNG spare parts, stone boulders, and paan.
The withdrawal of port restrictions for raw rubber was welcomed by the Tripura Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Its president, Moti Lal Debnath said: “A huge quantity of raw rubber is produced in Tripura. The export of this item to Bangladesh will greatly benefit the state.”
“Our raw rubber is of high quality,” he said. “Bangladesh can use it to produce high quality rubber goods.”
Debnath said a Bangladesh Commerce Ministry delegation, led by Additional Secretary Md Shafiqul Islam, visited Tripura last month.
Tripura state government representatives held a meeting with the delegation—representatives of Tripura Chamber of Commerce and Industry were also present.
At the time, the state government and Tripura business chamber urged Bangladesh’s delegation to withdraw port restrictions on goods from Tripura.
