North East Development Summit” to be held on 21-22 November 2017 at Imphal, Manipur, is an effort to highlight and explore the potential of North East India in further establishing itself as a land hub of India’s Act East Policy. The Northeast is a natural partner in India’s ‘Act East Policy’, being our land bridge to Association for South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), and the Act East Policy is a means to strengthen the stability, economy and prospects of our North Eastern region. The Act East Policy can significantly factor in ending the geographical isolation of India’s North Eastern Region and transforming it into a bridgehead for India to the booming ASEAN markets and its extended neighbourhood. Given the economic potential as well as the geo-political importance of the region the North East Region lies at the core of India’s Act East Policy. The focus is now on economic development and addressing ‘trust deficit’. The opening up of the landlocked NER economically to ASEAN countries and extended neighbours is considered as a potent means of conflict transformation.The aspect of economic linkages should be explored and nurtured to further strengthen ties and contribute in the development of the North-East India.

Key Focus Areas:

  • Trade& Investment
  • Connectivity& Infrastructure Development
  • Tourism Development in North-East India
  • Skill Development, Capacity Building and Entrepreneurship
