The two-day “Regional Conference on Good Governance Initiatives” with the sub-theme “Capacity Building/Technology/Best practices by Aspirational Districts” concluded at Hotel Vivor here on Thursday. 

DIPR reports that while addressing the participants at the valedictory session, chief secretary, R. Binchilo Thong observed that since South East Asia begins from the North Eastern States, its ethnic composition could make the trade and commerce interface smoother. He also called for extending the four-lane highway between Dimapur and Kohima to cover the Kohima-Imphal road by 2022 and also the proposed rail link between Dimapur and Zubza to facilitate future trade.

Listing a series of issues as the primary reasons for backwardness of Nagaland, the chief secretary was of the view that the greatest challenge today was ensuring that young people were educated and trained on par with their western peers.

Calling for successful implementation of Village Development Board (VDB) and Communitisation Act, Thong suggested reviewing the existing system and its effectiveness to enable these institutions to be active partners in achieving the State’s vision of sustainable development strategies.

Addressing the participants, additional secretary of Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances (Darpg) Under Union Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Vasudha Mishra expressed happiness that Nagaland agreed to host the 30th Regional Conference.

Mishra said she was happy that the States were taking interest in the Aspirational Districts program and added that this was the golden period for development of the districts. She also called upon DCs of the districts to form a team and deliberate on the problems and issues to be solved.

She also informed the participants that the Government of India had instructed all public sector undertakings to adopt districts that the DCs would help them identify, and with whose consultation a plan of action for development would be made.

Earlier in the day, PLN Raju, director of North Eastern Space Application Centre under department of Space Government of India, gave a slide-show presentation on the geo-portal on north eastern district resource plan. 

Mon DC, K Thavaseelan also gave a slide-show presentation on “Good Governance - Perspectives from a Remote and Backward District.” The program was chaired by Hiazu Meru and Hovithal Sothu.
