NE Business Summit in Dibrugarh from today

By Ron Duarah

DIBRUGARH, Nov 21 � The Union DoNER Ministry, along with the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC), is organising the North-East Business Summit at the Dibrugarh University campus here from tomorrow. The three-day meet will conclude on Sunday. The summit, now in its ninth edition, is being touted as the largest trade and investment conference-cum-exposition on the North-Eastern region.

The summit is particularly important this year because for the first time, it is being held outside a State capital, and hence it should be a forum to address key grass-root-level developmental issues. Two chief ministers from Myanmar � U Thar Aye, Chief Minister of Sagain Region and U Ye Myint, Chief Minister of Mandalay Region, will attend the inaugural session of the summit and share their perspectives on �North-East � Myanmar trade and economic exchanges.� The ICC feels that their visit is extremely important, given the fact that Myanmar is India�s true gateway to the ASEAN markets.

The DoNER Ministry is responsible for the matters relating to the planning, execution and monitoring of development schemes and projects in the North Eastern region. Its vision is to accelerate the pace of socio-economic development of the region so that it may enjoy growth parity with the rest of the country. One of the prime objectives of the Ministry is to showcase the inherent economic, social and cultural strength of the North East region as well as to mainstream the region with the rest of the country in sync with the objective of inclusive growth. Under this objective, this event is being organised.

The meet will address key issues related to the overall socio-economic development of the North-East which, despite being a region with tremendous economic potential, has not been able to grow as expected, and has largely remained untapped. The Indian Chamber strongly feels that policies and programmes need to be suitably monitored and implemented for taking the region to a higher growth trajectory in sync with the NE Vision 2020 document. Focused sessions on strategic areas like Energy and Power; Horticulture, Tea, Food Processing and Plantation; Infrastructure and Connectivity; Tourism and Hospitality; IT, Healthcare and Financial Services; Higher Education; International Trade with ASEAN in sync with the Look East Policy, etc., are on the agenda. There will be an investors� meet with the DoNER Ministry and the NE Industry ministers and senior officials for one-to-one exchange of ideas and views.

The summit will also have an exhibition on the region wherein all the States will display their indigenous products and showcase their comparative advantages to investors.

About 500 delegates from across the country and also from neighbouring countries are expected to attend the event. The event is set to witness the coming together of a very large number of senior politicians and public servants and industry captains and entrepreneurs, along with various subject experts.
