Seminar on opportunities and challenges in foreign trade
Dimapur, May 1 (EMN): The growing economic integration among the countries across the globe is leading to a major transformation in the overall import export scenario. With the emergence of World Trade Organization and regional trading blocs formed by different countries, the trade barriers have been removed to a great extent allowing the free flow movement of goods and services. The countries taken the advantage of this opportunity have immensely been benefitted occupying a wider market for the goods and services produced by them. The North-eastern part of India which shares its boundary with as many as four neighbouring countries viz. Bangladesh, Bhutan, China and Myanmar is yet to be integrated with this economic integration. While trade with Bangladesh and Bhutan has assumed importance in the wake of attempts to forge greater South Asian regional co-operation, trade with Myanmar has acquired added significance in the context of ‘Act East’ policy because of Myanmar’s geographical proximity to the prosperous economies of South-East Asia. To capitalize the situation the entrepreneurs of the region needs to be well versed with the import and export regime and other related issues, stated Chairman of CII-Nagaland state council, Neichute Doulo.
In this context, Doulo said the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in association with EXIM Bank is organising a seminar on “Opportunities and challenges in foreign trade” on May 3 at Hotel Acacia in Dimapur, at 10:30 a.m.
