• The entire textile value chain from fibre to garment, including raw materials, was represented in the summit.

• The summit  witnessed the participation of over 400 delegates from across the country.

• During the summit,  15 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) were signed among local entrepreneurs, institutes and State Governments.

Background

• Due to its inherent strength for skilled work force and locally available raw materials, the North Eastern Region has huge potential for investments, particularly in the field of textiles and handicrafts.

• In order to leverage this potential, the Union Ministry of Textiles is implementing projects worth Rs. 1,050 crore for handlooms, handicrafts, sericulture, apparel,  garmenting and technical textiles sectors.

• Similar initiatives were launched by other line Ministries to boost investments in the NER.

• However, this information is mostly in silos and does not provide a comprehensive picture to the investors about the opportunities in the region.

• The North East Investors Summit 2017 was held to address this concern.
