India Tea Price Watch – October 9, 2021

More reforms were announced this week, including a mechanization subsidy scheme. India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry has approved a $135,000 subsidy to aid tea garden workers in Assam and West Bengal. The focus is health, education, and skills development for women. During her trip to Assam, Commerce Minister Anupriya Patel challenged stakeholders to develop a self-sustainable business model with Assam as an export hub.
