“Mizoram is blessed with very high production of bamboo, which can be turned into a major source, not only for furniture but also for paper supply to the rest of the country,” Singh said while addressing a press conference here.
This could not only generate revenue for the state but also create opportunities for youth outside India, he said.
The DoNER minister added that he had already initiated an effort to reinforce Bamboo Development Board of India.
