The North-eastern part of India which shares its boundary with as many as four neighbouring countries viz. Bangladesh, Bhutan, China and Myanmar has 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.
It is in this context Confederation of Indian Industry proposes to organize a Seminar on “Opportunities and Challenges in Foreign Trade” in association with EXIM Bank on 17th February 2017 in Sikkim. The seminar will create an interface with key stakeholders for generating awareness on the issues which can provide much needed impetus towards the growth of international trade in the region
