The first meeting of NITI Forum for North East has outlined five development missions for promoting sectors like horticulture, tourism and food processing in the region.
The focus of development projects in the region will be based on the concept of “HIRA” which stands for Highways, Internet ways, Railways and Airways.
Talking to media, Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog Dr Rajiv Kumar said, the emphasis will also be given on education, health and skill development in the region. He further said that there is also a planning for UDAN three through which the state capitals will be interconnected.
The NITI Forum was formed to explore and formulate the framework for sustainable growth of the Northeast. It was constituted in February this year.
