Further saying that the Act East Policy of the Central government places Assam at an advantageous position in terms of development, he also assured to provide necessary support to the State government in the implementation of its welfare schemes.

The Chief Minister, while appreciating the support extended by UNDP, urged the delegation to offer technical guidance to the State government departments in implementation of the projects.

Chief Secretary Alok Kumar, Additional Chief Secretary (Finance) Rajiv Bora, Chief Minister's Principal Secretary Sanjay Lohiya and other senior officials of the State government were present during the visit of the delegation.
