The Narendra Modi government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative would also immensely help the Northeastern region by helping the potential entrepreneurs of the region build capacities through practical training, union minister for micro, small and medium enterprises Kalraj Mishra said here today.
Inaugurating a business incubation centre on readymade garrments and handloom for the Northeastern region in Guwahati, Mishra said the Centre has also taken a slew of measures that would help develop leadership qualities and instil entrepreneurial abilities among youths of the Northeastern region who otherwise lag behind due to absence of such support systems.
“This Centre will also provide opportunity for holistic development of youths of region through practical training and help them realize their full potential by building up their capacities,” the union minister said.
Earlier, speaking at the inaugural session of the Northeast MSME Conclave held at the Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship here, Mishra highlight the various initiatives undertaken by the BJP-led government at the Centre for promoting entrepreneurship in the MSME sector in the region.
He specially focused on various ‘Make in India’ initiatives and their potentiality of changing the economic scenario in the Northeast. The Centre would soon come up with an action plan to revamp the village and cottage industry sector in the Northeast and create an entrepreneur-friendly environment by setting up some incubation centres and scaling up the skill development activities, he added.
