Government to allow sugar exports

New Delhi, Dec 19: The government Thursday said that it will allow sugar exports, as there was surplus in the domestic market.

The decision was taken by the cabinet committee on economic affairs (CCEA) on the proposal sent by the department of commerce to continue export of sugar without any quantitative restriction.

“This (decision) is expected to give a positive signal to exporters and the international community on the efforts of the government to pursue a stable, long term and consistent export policy regime in the agriculture sector,” the CCEA said in a statement.
