Sub.: Webinar on Inland Waterway Transport for textile trade with Bangladesh
We are pleased to inform you that the Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL) is organizing a Webinar on Inland Waterway Transport for textile trade with Bangladesh (on Cisco WebEx platform).
Since there are frequent problems faced in the road transport system by the Indian exporters of textiles to Bangladesh, it is proposed to explore the possibility of using Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) corridor as an alternate mode of transport for textile trade between the two nations.
