Minister said this after Inaugurating the first Arogya Expo organised by the Ministrys Ayush Department as part of the World Ayurveda Congress here today, he said that it was a pity that India’s experience and strengths in traditional medicine have not translated into market shares in the global traditional medicines market.

“Ayurvedic medicines or herbal medicines or traditional medicines, Call it whatever the global market is estimated at about $100 billion today. India’s share in this is negligible because quality standards are not maintained to international specifications. The government has decided to address this lacuna,” he said.
