Shillong: The government will organise 'Investors Summit' here on January 30-31 to showcase North Eastern region as a global destination for investments.

The summit will also explore the possibility of convergence of efforts by various union ministries and states to attract investment in the region.

The two-day summit will be organised on 30-31 January at Shillong to attract investors for NER (North Eastern region), considered one of the most economically backward area in India.

The summit is expected to draw participation from the all North Eastern states, industries and leading investors across the country.

"The summit is expected to unlock huge potential of the NER in textile manufacturing and generate new avenues for employment in the region.

"North Eastern region has huge potential for investments particularly in the field of textiles and handicrafts due to its inherent strength for skilled work force and locally available raw material," a Textiles Ministry statement said.
