IDAN holds consultative meeting with stakeholders

As part of its series of consultative meetings with different entities in the business and development ecosystem of Nagaland, Investment and Development Authority of Nagaland (IDAN) held its second consultative meeting with various stakeholders and representatives in the fields of business and healthcare in Kohima on May 4.
A press release from IDAN stated that one of the highlights of the meeting was the possible signing of a tripartite MoU between Indrayani Biotech, Sri Sankardeva Netralaya and IDAN to set up an Eye Care Hospital in Nagaland.
The meeting between IDAN, Indrayani Biotech and Sri Sankardeva Netralayais was the outcome of the CSR Conclave 2022, wherein the investor shared their interest in starting an Eye Care Hospital in Nagaland. After series discussions over the past few months, the investor was keen to sign a MoU with the Government of Nagaland and looking to start work with the support of the government.
Chairman IDAN, Abu Metha, believed that this will not only benefit the people of Nagaland in terms of providing advanced technology-backed expert care within the state but also boost employment.
At the meeting, Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CNCCI) highlighted the organization’s strength and reach, their plan and shared their market insight and recommendations to IDAN chairman.
The team’s latest proposed event was initiated together with Assam Chamber of Commerce to host the first North East Chamber of Commerce Meet with the objective to set up a federation to build a healthy business ecosystem across various states of Northeast Region.
In the meeting with the Nagaland Flower Growers’ Society (NFGS), the Metha emphasized that it is time to convert the passion for flowers into a prosperous livelihood, employment generation and contribute to the overall economy. One of the key takeaways of this meeting was the need and potential of setting up a permanent flower market, which will not only provide permanent revenue to the growers but also act as a tourist attraction destination.
The meeting concluded with a meeting with the Naga Private Practitioners Association (NPPA). Metha acknowledged the inputs and insight received and highlighted the need to work collaboratively as partners to address the “wealth drain” due to a large number of their patients moving out of the State seeking access to better health care.
