Northeast India a gateway to Southeast Asia –

North-Eastern states are increasingly playing an important strategic role and have the potential to become India’s growth engine. In recent times, the Indian government has made substantial efforts to promote and boost connectivity, education and security in the region.
India aims to make Northeast India a gateway to Southeast Asia and the region is experiencing exponential growth in terms of development works.
The PM’s vision also includes a roadmap for making the Northeast secure. For this, a comprehensive plan is needed to protect borders and work with the neighbouring nations to enhance security.
Geographical conditions make Northeast India’s international borders porous, making them susceptible to illegal immigration.
The development of border roads in the Northeast is also crucial given the tensions between India and China.

Northeast will also be a part of India’s saga of growth –
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma recently said that the region has witnessed unprecedented growth due to the PM Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ and thanked him for extending the benefits of national development to the Northeast,
“A region once declared by PM Jawaharlal Nehru as lacking the feeling of oneness and belonging with the rest of India, the Northeast has achieved unprecedented development thanks to PM Modi’s vision of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas,” Himanta Biswa Sarma added.

In the coming years, the region of Northeast will also be a part of India’s saga of growth and development and actively contribute to the nation’s growing economy and ambitions, he added.
