Indo-Bangla export import trade resumes at Akhaura check post
AGARTALA, July 29 (TIWN): The export and import business between Tripura and Bangladesh and the transportation of goods resumed form Monday, said Export and Import Secretary Habul Biswas. The trade was suspended due to the construction work of a bridge, at Bangladesh side. All transports remained suspended due to this Bharamanbaria Road and waterway Baily bridge renovation work, he said. As there is only one way for importing as well exporting goods from both the sides, it is decided by the authority that business will remain suspended for two days and the bridge will be renovated under emergency time period of two days and the business will be resumed by Monday in full swing. All the major markets of Tripura depend on the import of fish from Bangladesh, so there is possibility that measures might be taken to continue the supply of fishes to the state as fishes come in smaller vehicles but the movement of heavy goods loaded truck will remain suspended. The Akhaura land custom station has been mainly dealing with import business from Bangladesh for catering the domestic need of fish, edible items, melamine and toiletries, ready-made garments and stones chips in Tripura, but the suspension of formal trade badly affects the state markets.
