ACCI bid to seek market linkages

ITANAGAR, May 22: Arunachal Chamber of Commerce & Industries (ACCI) president Tarh Nachung had wide ranging talks with representatives of Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) and Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and ASSOCHAM to seek market linkages for state products.

Pointing out that the present central govt has upped its ante for the neglected NE region in tune with the Centre’s Act East Policy, he said that the central traders’ bodies should reciprocate by intensifying their activities in the state.

It may be recalled that APCC chief adviser Pradeep Kumar had suggested this while recalling that trade & commerce director Tokong Pertin had urged the CII once to influence the Centre to reopen border trade with Myanmar, China and Bhutan as such trade has been going on for ages while Arunachal has vast potential for export and import. However, former speaker-minister Setong Sena was instrumental for getting central sanction for state’s first border trade center (BTC) at Nampong in Changlang district bordering Myanmar.

Working silently from the background, the ACCI had bought a turnaround in trade and commerce, outgoing president Techi Lala said while recalling various achievements under his guidance.

While the ACCI got affiliated to CII, ICC and associated with ASSOCAHM, its team took part in an international trade conclave in Myanmar, to name a few, Lala said before tendering resignation.

However, with unanimous approval of the executive, sitting general secretary Tarh Nachung consented to head the ACCI. He lauded Lala for his unstinted support for tackling traders’ problems, particularly donation and law & order.
