India issues special trade concessions for Bhutan

India has decided to make special trade concessions to Bhutan in view of the close trade and economic ties with the Himalayan Kingdom. A statement issued by the Embassy of India in Thimphu stated that the Indian government has made a special exemption for Bhutan by lifting the restriction on import of potato only from Bhutan with effect from July 4 , 2022 to June 2023, thereby alleviating the difficulties faced by Bhutanese traders in exporting potato to India.

Potato is the most important cash crop of Bhutan and India is the top export destination for its potato exports.

The Indian government had recently revised the import policy to allow the import of fresh wholly produced ginger from Bhutan with effect from May 19, 2022. This will address the problems faced by Bhutanese farmers and traders in exporting ginger to India.
