AGARTALA, Dec 15 (TIWN): The neighboring Bangladesh Govt has withdrawn its restriction on importing 9 items through land ports aimed to strengthen the border dependent economy of countries.

It is reported that the Bangladesh had exported various items amounting to Rs 522.42 crore in 2018-19 while imports of goods through seven land ports in Tripura to the neighbouring country were around Rs 14.66 crore, they said.

"The trade imbalance is due to restrictions imposed by Dhaka on various items. The neighboring country has withdrawn its restrictions on importing nine items through Akhaura land port and Srimantapur land custom station," state industries and commerce department's additional director Swapna Debnath said, reported PTI.

The nine items on which the restriction was removed from December 1 included cashew nut, paper, sugar, generator, broken glass, chocolate, baby wipes, confectionary and bitumen, she said.
