Dimapur, March 27 (EMN): The minister of Planning and Coordination, Land Revenue and Parliamentary Affairs, Neiba Kronu, on Friday inaugurated a guest house and marketing shed at International Border Trade Centre, Avakhung in Phek district.
The trade centre was constructed by the department of Industries and Commerce, Government of Nagaland with an objective to promote international trade and commercial activities in the state.
Kronu said at the inaugural event that the newly established International Trade Centre would bring India and Myanmar closer and improve the economy of both the countries, informed an update received here on Saturday.
However, the minister stated that the success and progress of the trade centre would depend on the people- ‘their participation, extensive utilisation, hospitality, honesty, co-operation and dedication’.
He went on to emphasise on the prospects of trade with Myanmar, citing India’s Act East Policy.
“Trade between Myanmar and Nagaland will also open up trade with other South East Asian nations and alleviate Nagaland’s massive dependency from the rest of India while also expanding India’s economic relation with these countries,” Kronu was quoted as saying.
Announcing that intermediate road from Lazaphuhu to Avakhung via Akhegwo will commence soon; which could enhance the scope of Washiho Cement Factory, the minister requested the public to co-operate with the concerned authorities in the road construction works so that such projects can be completed in time and without hurdles.
