New Delhi: The government has assured exporters to bring farm exports back on track by ironing out the difficulties and hurdles exporters are facing.
Agriculture secretary Sanjay Agarwal said that the government will look into all the issues related to transportation, international freight and permission for a lower strength operation.
“We will consider issues pertaining to port, ocean freight services, courier services for necessary resolution. The Home ministry has already issued directives allowing interstate transportation of goods,” he said while addressing exporters and agri industry representatives through video conference.
The industry demand permission for low scale operation with at least 25-30% strength to fulfil export demands they have in hand. The opening up of their operation will also help them book new orders as there is great demand of food items at global market due to Covid-19
