We are not registered with the GST and need export finance, for this proposal. I am in touch with our Rice suppliers, freight Forwarding and clearing agents and Shipping Agency which will arrange this shipment. We have to quote on CIF basis and also provide a Preformance Guarantee or which we need help.
