Naturonomics: A blend of Nature and Economics
Assam’s Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on 19 February 2015 advocated for Naturonomics for Assam and other North Eastern (NE) states to usher in a robust economy in the region.
Naturonomics means using right blend of nature and economics for sustainable development in the region. As part of this, the government would give adequate impetus on tea, bamboo, food processing and other agro-based industries to stimulate the industrial growth of the State.

Assam International Trade and Industrial Fair is a seven day fair which will end on 25 February 2015. The fair has seen participation from countries like Bangladesh, Myanmar, Pakistan, Laos, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Bhutan and Thailand.
