Tripura will become a gateway to NE: Sarkar

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, June 5 - Asserting that the State has been able to create an investment friendly climate, Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Saturday said days are not far when Tripura would become a gateway to the entire Northeastern region.

�Once Feni bridge is constructed, the State will be able to access Chittagong port in Bangladesh. This will obviously open up a new opportunity to explore markets of South Asian Nations too�, he said while speaking at a Business Meet hosted by ASSOCHAM at Prajna Bhavan here.

Praising ASSOCHAM for holding such a meet here, the Chief Minister said Tripura may be a small State but the size is not always that important.

Recalling the touching comment of then President APJ Abdul Kalam during his last visit to the State, Sarkar said, �He exhorted me not to consider the State as small and tiny. Small thing can make a big difference�.

�The government will render all possible help if any investor or entrepreneur comes forward to set up industrial unit here�, he said.
