Imphal: Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh on Monday launched various horticulture products produced by different entrepreneurs of the state at a function held at his secretariat.

The state government has been putting in every effort to make the state self-reliant in various sectors and assured that all possible financial assistance would be provided to Start Ups and entrepreneurs to achieve self-reliance, Biren said.
Dried fruit’s packets which were widely seen earlier in the state had now been substituted with indigenously produced items and this had been made possible with the contribution of different Start-ups operating in the state, he added.
He said production of different value added fruit products had already been started in hill areas of Manipur since 2018 under Van Dhan Vikas Karyakram of TRIFED and informed that about 41,000 women are currently employed forming around 400 Self Help Groups under the scheme.
Different value added food products had also been exported to other states, he added.
