Assam Emerging as Economic Hub of East India And South East Asia, Says President

The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee inaugurated the ‘Namami Brahmaputra’ festival in Guwahati, Assam today (March 31, 2017).

Speaking on the occasion, the President said Assam is emerging as an economic hub of East India and South East Asia. It is the gateway and most effective location to put into effect the Prime Minister’s Act East policy. He said South East Asia is an important destination for India’s investment and trade. India will soon celebrate 25 years of its association with ASEAN.

The President said Assam has immense potential. It is rich in natural resources and its people are hard working. What is needed is strong drive, right policies and effective implementation. Referring to the diverse and distinctive culture of Assam, the President said India’s strength was its ability to manage diversity and forge unity in divergence. It was not just the elites but also the common people who were firmly committed to trust, mutual understanding and harmony. He said Indians were argumentative but never intolerant. Our traditions, including the teachings of Assam’s great scholar and social reformer Shankaradev never allowed the practice of intolerance.

The President said Brahmaputra River is the lifeline of Assam and the region. It is intertwined into the economy, culture and day-to-day life of the people of the area through which it flows. He complimented the State Government for having started ‘Namami Brahmaputra’ as an annual festival to showcase Assam’s culture as well as potential.
