Tuesday, 05 June, 2018, 08 : 00 AM [IST]
The Indian embassy in Beijing, the Chinese capital, organised a seminar aimed at promoting the exports of sugar from India, a major producer and exporter of sugar, to China, a key consumer and importer of the commodity, recently.

About 25 Chinese companies, representing major stakeholders in China’s sugar industry (including sugar refiners, importers and traders) participated in the workshop, which witnessed the participation of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), China Sugar Association (CSA) and COFCO Sugar as well.

Gaurav Goel, president, Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA); Abinash Verma, director general, ISMA, and Adhir Jha, chief executive officer, Indian Sugar Exim Corporation (ISEC), presented a strong case for exporting Indian sugar to China.

Prashant S Lokhande, economic and commercial counsellor, Indian Embassy, elaborated on the growing economic and commercial engagements between the two countries and assured the Chinese companies that India would emerge as a major sugar trading partner for China with consistent policies and a quality product.

Verma gave a detailed presentation on strength of the India’s sugar sector. It is expected that this first-ever seminar would give impetus to tapping the huge Chinese sugar market.

The ISMA delegation also called on Gautam Bambawale, India’s ambassador to China, who stated that sugar exports were also discussed during the informal summit between the Indian prime minister and the Chinese president of China, which took place in Wuhan earlier this year.

He extended the full support of the Indian embassy and its consulates in China in promoting India’s sugar exports to China, and suggested conducting a similar seminar in Guangzhou in the coming three months.
