In a significant advancement for Tawang’s agricultural sector, the initial consignment of one metric ton of Tawang kiwis was dispatched to Guwahati on Tuesday evening, under the vigilant supervision of Deputy Commissioner Kanki Darang.
This pivotal initiative is a collaborative effort between M/s Tawang Fresh and Assam’s Pasoli Agro Industries, bolstered by technical guidance from Tawang’s horticulture department, as per information.
