Talking to news persons in Guwahati yesterday, Assam Industry and Commerce Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary said, the third party agency would find out the reasons behind why Assam tea is not able to compete in the international market.  He said that the proposed, agency could be a management institute or any other top agency.
