Guwahati: Indian Chamber of Commerce in association with Bangladesh Assistant High Commission, Guwahati, developed a portal namely “India Bangladesh Trade Portal” for the North East India Region.
This trade portal will facilitate the business fraternity of India and Bangladesh. It’s a trade portal wherein database of exporters and importers of both northeast India and Bangladesh would be uploaded, and would enable B2B collaboration between buyers and sellers of both countries.
Shah Mohammad Tanvir Monsur, Asst. High Commissioner, Bangladesh High Commission, Guwahati, said that India-Bangladesh bilateral trade statistics amounts to 10 billion dollars per annum, but North-East India contributes only 1 per cent of this trade statistics, which includes traditional items like coal, vegetables, limestone, tea etc.
He highlighted the potential of other items like handloom and handicrafts and muga silk to augment the business trade with northeast India.
