ITAGAR, Dec 30: Exhibits from Chi arrived yesterday at the border trade point at Pangsau Pass in Changlang district of Aruchal Pradesh en route to the Assam Intertiol Agri- Horti Show 2016 at Guwahati scheduled for next month.
Passing through the historic Stilwell Road, the exhibits arrived all the way from Baoshan in Chi’s Yun province, an official communiqué said here today.
The exhibits were received from the Chinese delegate by representatives of the North East Federation on Intertiol Trade (NEFIT) in presence of State officials including trade & commerce director Tokong Pertin and Jairampur additiol deputy commissioner Kento Riba.
Pertin said that the use of the Stilwell Road was a “historic moment” after it was constructed in the Second World War.
He said that the road can be a conduit for trade and better understanding for the two Asian economic giants as well as among the countries of the Bangladesh-Chi-India-Myanmar Forum for Regiol Cooperation (BCIM).
The director expressed his enthusiasm to provide every possible support in terms of logistics with a hope that it will go a long way in developing future trade and business among BCIM countries and ASEAN.
Riba, who looked unhappy with the poor liaisons by representatives of NEFIT with the Myanmar government leading to delays in delivering the exhibits, suggested that they involve the local administration in future to avoid such circumstances, the communiqué added.
