The ‘NITI Forum for North East’, a dedicated forum within the NITI Aayog constituted in February 2018 to ensure sustainable economic growth of the North Eastern Region (NER) will have its first meeting in Agartala, the capital of Tripura, tomorrow with the theme “Moving Towards a Prosperous North East Region’. The meeting will be chaired by Rajeev Kumar, Vice-Chairman, NITI Aayog. Apart from Dr. Jitendera Singh, Minister for DoNER, as per a release, the maiden meeting of the Forum will be attended by the Chief Minister of the North Eastern State and other stakeholders.  

The meeting will focus on the constraints of development and deliberate on steps to streamline the resources for sustainable development of the region in areas like Agriculture, Organic Farming, Hydel energy, Connectivity, Eco-tourism, etc.

The meeting will also focus on broad strategies to improve road, rail and air connectivity to the NE region, strengthen organic farming, early completion of ongoing irrigation projects, etc. In order to promote and strengthen Tourism in the region, the Forum will discuss ways to strengthen the mechanism of North East Tourism Development Council (NETDC) established last year.
