The first aim is to make special efforts for those whose livelihoods have been affected by Covid-19. While encouraging local produce, their packaging, processing and marketing should also be worked upon. Considering the possibility in the medicinal and aromatic plant sector, the forest and horticulture departments need to work on fruits, flowers, herbs and bee-keeping. Along with encouraging local products, focus will also have to be laid on their branding. Special focus should be laid on the home-stay scheme to boost tourism.
