Export Potential of Tripura and Procedures : 5 Day Programme

IIFT Kolkata recently conducted a 5-days residential training program titled as “Export Potential of Tripura and Procedures” for the in-service government officials from Tripura during December 12-16, 2022. Tripura along with other North-Eastern states of India have much to gain by leveraging their unique geographic position to their advantage in terms of geo-politics, geo-economics, geo-strategy, and human development standpoints. In particular, Tripura opens up to its bordering country Bangladesh. Strategically, Bangladesh is a very important country for Tripura as this bordering country which allows traders to have their physical access to Bangladesh through different land customs stations (LCS). The recent border trade infrastructure development at Akhaura, LCS testifies the importance Government of India putting to achieve intense ‘connectivity’ with Bangladesh. Hence the training program was conducted to train 15 government officials from the Department of Handloom and Handicraft Department of Tripura. The program was sponsored by North Eastern Council.

The program was conducted under the program directorship of Dr. Oindrila Dey with the support from Dr. K. Rangarajan (Centre-Head, IIFT Kolkata) and Dr. Gautam Dutta (Head- CeNEST Division).
