9th North East Business Summit Began in Assam

Nov 23, 2013 10:37 IST

The North East Business summit began on 22 November 2013 at Dibrugarh in Assam. The summit is being jointly organized by the Indian Chambers of Commerce and the DoNER Ministry in Dibrugarh from 22 to 24 November 2013.

Union Minister for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) Pawan Singh Ghatowar has inaugurated the two day summit. Two Myanmar Province Chief Ministers and Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh also attended the summit.

More than 500 delegates from across the country, and also from neighbouring countries are expected to attend the 9th North-East Business Summit.

The event will focus on strategic areas like Tea. The event is being held in the major tea-growing region of India. The five Upper Assam districts are supposed to be the largest tea producing area in the world, and contribute significantly to India’s tea production.

The other issues on focus include Energy, Power, Horticulture, Food Processing, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Tourism and Hospitality, Healthcare and Financial Services in sync with ‘Look East’ Policy of India.

The Summit is particularly important this year, because for the first time, it is being held in the interiors of the North-East, in Dibrugarh in Upper Assam, and hence would be a Forum to address key, real grass-roots level developmental issues.
