KOHIMA — Kudecho Khamo, the Advisor for Civil Administrative Works Department (CAWD) and Taxes, emphasised on Monday that entrepreneurship is pivotal for a progressive society and said that it serves as the engine propelling all economic activities, contributing to nation-building.

He made these remarks at the Entrepreneurs Development Agency (EDA) office, Regal Demo Complex, Kohima, during the launch of the Small Enterprise Development Programme (SEDP) for the 18th Chozuba Assembly Constituency, which he represents as an MLA.

Khamo pointed out that, unlike their forefathers, who were predominantly employed or engaged in farming, entrepreneurship is a relatively new concept for the current generation. He noted that many Nagas are still the first generation of entrepreneurs.

He, however, stressed the importance of entrepreneurship in terms of employment, development, successful living, and nation-building.

Khamo asserted that there is always a way for those interested in entrepreneurship, which has limitless potential and scope, as opposed to the limited opportunities available in government jobs.

Khamo envisioned that every family in his constituency should engage in a project, foster entrepreneurship, and allocate dedicated time for prayer. He underscored the need for collective efforts to achieve progress, asserting that wealth can be attained without monetary investment by effectively transforming ideas, skills, and effort into financial success.

He challenged participants to be determined, develop self-confidence, and embrace entrepreneurship as a profession to progress alongside the rest of society.

Manish Jain, a chartered accountant from Guwahati, was the resource person for the programme. In his address, he highlighted the various types of enterprises and motivated the participants to dream big.

Jain pointed out that government jobs are getting saturated and with that, there are opportunities for entrepreneurs. He encouraged participants to believe in themselves, be dedicated to their thoughts and ideas, and maintain discipline.

The programme also included brief speeches by Vesupra Luruo, advisor, NDPP 18th Chozuba AC, and Yota Khesoh, vice president of NDPP Phek Region. They expressed their appreciation for the MLA’s keen interest and initiatives aimed at empowering the people of the constituency.

The launching programme was led by Thepukrayi Nienu, general secretary of NDPP, 18th Chozuba AC and concluded with a vote of thanks delivered by Vepozoyi Theyo, vice president of NDPP 18th Chozuba AC.

A special song was presented by the Entrepreneurs Development Agency (EDA) Boys. The invocation prayer was led by Mudonuyi Veswu, chaplain of NDPP 18th Chozuba AC, and the benediction was said by Vetacho Nienu, deacon of Chakhesang Christian Revival Church, PWD Kohima.
