As part of the North East India Business and Cultural Integration Initiative, Mumbai will be able to enjoy the ‘Colours of India’ event later this week with a display of authentic Northeastern culture. The June 30 event aims to promote business and tourism in these states.
Organised by the Cultural Integration Initiative (CII), the daylong programme at the Taj Mahal Palace will be divided into two sessions. The morning session, titled ‘Make in North East’, will have renowned industrialists and corporates from Godrej and Taj Group of Hotels reveal the benefits of investing in the Northeast to almost 200 aspiring investors.
The evening session will involve an exhibition of the Northeastern region’s authenticity. A Bihu performance along with a colourful fashion presentation by top designers from the states will be the highlight of the evening. Food delicacies and handicrafts, all local to Northeast, will also be on display.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will be the chief guest at the evening session. T K Zeliang and Mukul Sangma, the chief ministers of Nagaland and Meghalaya, respectively, will be present too, along with top officials from the states.
Ranjit Barthakur, chairman of the event organising committee, said, “The initiative is expected to bring investment to the Northeast as lots of corporates have already shown interest to participate and explore Northeast as destination, especially to take advantage of its proximity to South East Asia.”
