India-Taiwan explore possibilities of expanding tea trade

 
A business delegation from the Indian tea industry recently visited Taiwan to explore possibilities of expanding two-way trade. The delegation, led by the Tea Board of India Chairman MGVK Bhanu, visited Taiwan from June 28 to July 1, and held meetings with important stakeholders of the Taiwan tea industry.

The delegation also held a meeting at the Taiwan government's Council of Agriculture, where possibilities of co-operation with Indian tea companies were discussed, according to a Tea Board of India release.

India-Taipei Association's Director General Pradeep Kumar Rawat stressed the need to publicise and popularise Indian tea in Taiwan.

"The ready-to-drink (RTD) segment offers huge scope for expansion, as the masala tea is very popular in Taiwan," Rawat said.
