North Eastern Region of India is predominantly rural, with an abundance of natural resources and a humongous untapped potential in agricultural sectors like horticulture, floriculture, medicinal and aromatic plants, livestock etc. Biodiversity, congenial climate for agriculture, high quality fruits, vegetables, spices, bamboo, tea and host of other crops with very low use of agro-chemicals indicate colossal prospects for organic farming. In the move from largely subsistence cultivation to a surplus economy with the emergence of commercial crop cultivation, private entrepreneurs can be encouraged to set up storage, distribution and marketing infrastructure such as a cold-storage chain along major arterial highways. This is critical for exploiting the horticulture potential of the region and bringing perishables speedily to marketing hubs. Public private partnerships, investments and infrastructure development will act as a catalyst for economic and social growth of the eight states comprising this region. As voluminous drives for growth and development appear, it is of utmost importance that the region, as a collective identity, embarks on a vibrant journey to realize the dreams of a better future. This prophecy can be realized only through the combined effort of all stakeholders.
