Commerce and industry ministry said that “Ten International buyers from seven countries of Bhutan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Indonesia, UAE, Sultanate of Oman and Greece participated in the meet and interacted with the exporters”.

The products that are grown in Arunachal Pradesh were exhibited by Growers and exporters. These products were Mandarin oranges, kiwi, pineapple, king chilly, large cardamom, organic products, other fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers and spices.

The ministry said “This conference was held to provide a platform for B2B and B2G meetings of international buyers with the importers and exporters and the progressive farmers and growers from the North East Region particularly from Arunachal Pradesh to explore the opportunities and prospects of agriculture and horticulture exports".

As per the ministry, the main motive of this event which was held at Itanagar is to bring the North-Eastern states of India on the export map. This March, APEDA had organised a buyer-seller meet in Guwahati, in Imphal in June and then in Agartala in September.
