About Event  | Brochure


North Eastern region of India is blessed with the bounty of nature. The region is unique in many respects. While abundance of natural resources signifies the potential, absence of any significant business and industrial activities mark the situation of lack of jobs and business activities and characterize continuance of its economic backwardness. While Government of India is committed to creating opportunities foryouth and providing social and industrial infrastructure for its overall and rapid development, the growth so far has been less than desired, largely due to the low level of the business and industry engagementand poor focus on local competence building and partnerships among the development agencies, industry, institutions and the Governments.
 
Since the North Eastern region is largely rural, and horticultural production dominates the agri-landscape, any development planning has to largely focus on the farm and rural sector. Therefore there is need for partnerships for training and competence building,investments, marketing, processing, projects and infrastructure development to accelerate growth and economic activities, leading to more jobs, incomes and opportunities for the people of this region,which comprises of eight States, namely: Assam, Arunanchal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura.
 
The proposed 2nd Edition as Emerging North East 2019, comprising of Development Expo 2019, Agri and Rural Expo, industrial Expo and North East Development Meet will provide an opportunity for the region to showcase its potential and opportunities for the rest of the country to offer what it has to for partnering and engaging to explore the opportunities and participating in the growth and development of the region. The three day Exhibition & Conference will bring a large number of the national and international stake-holders from the industry, institutions, Government and the development sectors to showcase the programs and schemes, products, technologies and services; and deliberate upon the issues and opportunities and the way forward. The event, comprised of the technical conferences, investment and business meets, partnership events, entrepreneurs' seminars, farmer's workshops and large exhibition, would serve as a significant step towards addressing the objectives.
 
Emerging North East is organized by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India which is scheduled to take place from 20th-22th Feb, 2019 at ManiramDewan Trade Centre NH-37 Betkutchi Guwahati Assam. The mega event comprising of Development Expo, Agri and Rural Expo and North East Development Meet will provide an opportunity for the region to showcase its potential and opportunitiesfor the rest of the country to offer what it has to for partnering and engaging to explore the opportunities and participating in the growth and development of the region.
