Talking to The Hindu Tea Board sources said that the External Affairs Ministry (in collaboration with the Ministry of Commerce) was now spearheading bilateral negotiation for trading a host of commodities between both the countries. While tea features among the products and commodities listed for exports from India, cotton holds prime position on Egypt's agenda.
Meanwhile the Board is in an advanced stage of negotiation with a number of large Russian blenders and packers, marketing Indian packet tea in that country, for allowing them to use logos such as Indian Tea and Gold Standard issued by the Board. At present, such logos are issued only to the Indian exporters. Negotiation is also on through the diplomatic channels to convince the Russian Federation authorities to remove the differential tariff structure.
With the existing deputy chairman of the Tea Board, Basudeb Bannerjee, completing his five year term on July 31, search is on to find a new person.
