The North Eastern Council (NEC) has proposed a project worth over Rs 10 crore to give a facelift to Ïewduh.
While speaking to reporters, the outgoing NEC secretary, Moses Chalai, said that there is a need to improve and beautify the Ïewduh market, the biggest in the state.
According to the NEC, the government has been asked to rework the detailed project report (DPR) before starting the project. The council is yet to release funds pending finalisation of the DPR.
The work for the facelift of Ïewduh is likely to start in the next two to three months.
Meanwhile, Chalai said that the North East has witnessed significant improvements in railways, waterways and airways in the last few years, as well as growth in the banking, health and power sectors.
The NEC secretary advocated that the North Eastern region should take advantage of the Industrial Policy 4.0, which, according to him, is the way to move forwards with the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IOT) technology.
Stating that India will become a $30 trillion economy by 2047, he said that the North East should aspire to contribute 5 percent of this target.
