Innovative Approaches to Reducing NTBs and Para-tariffs facing Nepal

With support from Asia Foundation, SAWTEE is carrying out a detailed study on ginger value chain and exports of the product. The objective of the study is to identify the critical non-tariff barriers in export to destination market in general and to India in particular. It also aims to identify the sanitary and phyto-sanitary measures and the border measures that affect the export of the products and work out innovative ideas in collaboration with the government agencies, ginger producer‘s association and chambers of commerce to reduce the cost of transaction and barriers on export.
