Siliguri, 23rd July: Like Singapore, Siliguri will also be a ‘logistics hub’ in the coming days with the initiative of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). Reportedly, the following initiative has been taken for financial development by spreading the import-export system of Northeast India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Bangladesh through the Siliguri Corridor in the country and abroad.
Work on making Siliguri a logistics hub using the adjoining Fulbari dry port has already been started. Through this dry port, the imported goods from producers from Northeast India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Bangladesh will be exported within the country and abroad. Representatives of CII and other countries met various investors and held a meeting at a private hotel in Siliguri today. In the following meeting, the plan was discussed in detail with the administrative heads. Apart from this, the infrastructure of the said dry port was inspected today.
In this regard, Amit Kumar stated that imported goods from Northeast India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Bangladesh can be exported at a low cost through the Siliguri Corridor. Therefore the CII is taking initiatives to convert North Bengal city into a ‘Logistics Hub’.
