“In the future, government e-market (GEM), a digital platform for procurement, will be one of the means of marketing local goods. So the current government launched GEM in 2019 to bring transparency in this procurement. Digitization will be the only way for prosperity, transparency and development of the country in all fields. As a result, it is possible to easily complete audit in government offices” This was said by Deputy Chief Minister of Tripura Jishnu Debvarma while inaugurating a workshop on GEM at the Agartala Town Hall on the initiative of Finance Department on Wednesday.
The workshop was attended by various levels of officials attached to GEM of Agartala Treasury-1 and Treasury-II, Jirania, Mohanpur.
In the workshop, Deputy Chief Minister Mr. Devvarma also said that local traders, members of self-help groups, self-employed people will be able to promote their products in the national market through their inclusion in GEM. As a result, the goods produced in the state will be much easier to reach the national market.
Therefore, the Deputy Chief Minister urged the concerned department to take initiatives so that more and more local businessmen include their names in GEM.
While speaking, the Deputy Chief Minister also said that the current central and state governments give importance to the people’s ideas in the development plans of the common people.
