GANGTOK, Dec 2 - The annual border trade through Nathu La, the frontier post at Sino-Indian border in Sikkim, ended yesterday with traders of both sides clocking a turnover of Rs 3.54 crore.
The Indian traders exported oil, ghee, blankets, copper items, rice, textile and processed goods among other items to their counterparts in Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) worth Rs 2,83,91,230 while the import comprising mostly of quilts/blankets and jackets stood at Rs 70,96,750,
The bilateral trade at Nathu La was suspended temporarily in July after a prolonged standoff between the two neighbours over Doklam issue, but business had resumed quietly two weeks ago. The trade will resume in May next year. � PTI
