She further informed that under the DEH initiative, district export promotion committees have been constituted in most of the districts, and products and services with export potential have been identified.
“The scheme will go a long way in ushering in an era of socio-economic development of the region and for catering to the aspirations of people and it will also provide impetus to micro, small, medium and larger enterprises,” she added.
