Arunachal Pradesh Industries Minister Tamiyo Taga asked the Centre’s help for establishment of an export-oriented industrial park in the state.
According to the Taga, the park can provide infrastructure support to local cane and bamboo-based industries through private entrepreneurship.
While speaking at the fourth meeting of the Trade Development and Promotion Council, he also sought help from the Centre for providing financial assistance for development of an urban haat in the capital city.
He also sought an incentive of capital subsidy from the Centre for promotion of pig farming and a special export package for landlocked and underdeveloped states of the Himalayan region, reports The Arunachal Times.
For development of marketing in the state, Taga urged the centre to establish a logistic hub in the state for storage, cold storage, grading, packaging, transportation/cargo and marketing of large cardamom and other agri-horti products.
He also asked the Centre for development of cluster based industrial corridors along the Trans-Arunachal highway.
Taga said that many local produces of the state like kiwi, bamboo shoots, cardamom, ginger, rubber which have an effective marketing potential are yet to get the desired market in India and abroad.
He urged the Centre to restore the trade routes to Myanmar and Tibet region of China through Arunachal and establishment of banking facilities with foreign exchange provisions in Nampong town, and at Pangsau Pass in Myanmar.
The meeting was held to improve Centre’s cooperation with the states and union territories for export promotion of the country.
