Tripura ships cargo to Bangladesh
An inaugural consignment of 40,000 brooms has cleared the path for trade through the Agartala-akhaura Integrated Check Post. The shipment signalled the removal of trade barriers at the border between Bangladesh and the northeast Indian state. The Chittagong Trading Company of Bangladesh purchased the brooms, and they were sent by the Ganga Trading Company from Tripura. Bangladesh can now import a wealth of produce from its neighbour, including cattle, fresh fruits, seeds, rice, wheat, onion, garlic, and dried fish. Among non-foodstuff, Tripura can move stones and boulders, coal, chemical fertilizer, wood, timber, and spare parts for CNGS to Bangladesh.
