Dr Khekugha Muru, Chairman of CNCCI, announced this development during a press conference held in Dimapur on a Saturday afternoon. The conclave will bring together a diverse group of participants, including stakeholders, academics, and diplomats from northeastern states who have served in various capacities in Southeast Asian countries, possessing expertise in the Act East Policy and other pertinent business-related matters. These experts will address a range of issues that concern the region.
The conclave will center discussions on critical topics such as the convergence of markets in the Northeast to support entrepreneurs and startups, the development of modern infrastructure, including advanced warehouses to facilitate business operations, exploration of untapped resources and markets, and the promotion of tourism circuits within the region. Additionally, the conclave will deliberate on insurgency issues in the region, with the aim of fostering a conducive atmosphere for business growth.
While six delegates from each state have received invitations to attend the conclave, there will be flexibility regarding the number of participants. This inclusiveness underscores the shared sentiment among business communities in the northeastern region, emphasizing the importance of coming together on a common platform to address collective concerns.
Dr Muru highlighted that the CNCCI initiated the idea for this conclave, and it has taken several years to bring it to fruition. He underscored the significance of addressing common challenges and leveraging shared opportunities for mutual benefit and collaboration among the northeastern states’ business communities.
The three-day event will encompass an inaugural program, a business summit, and a closing ceremony during which an action plan will be formulated and set into motion.
Nagaland Chief Minister, Neiphiu Rio, will grace the inaugural program as the chief guest of the event, Dr Muru said.
