Need to increase exports of low volume-high value crops: Rajnath
Jul 11, 2018
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday stressed on increasing India’s exports of low volume-high value crops.
Addressing the concluding session during the 67th Plenary Session of the NEC in Shillong, Singh said, We should focus on growing low volume-high value crops for export.
He added that Railway Ministry can help in exporting the perishable commodities and horticulture produce like kiwis and flowers through superfast AC wagons.
Speaking at the event, the Home Minister said the 'New North East' will emerge with better Road Connectivity and Information Technology.
The North East needs better Road Connectivity and it has recently made some progress in this area. The economic potential of the region will be realised with better connectivity, said Shri Rajnath Singh.
If we can provide quality broadband services in the region the youth of the North East will find the employment opportunities closer to their home. It would also stop the migration of local youth to distant areas of the country, he added.
Singh said the ITIs and Polytechnic Institutes should play a role in Skill Development. NEC should also consider setting up the Regional Institute for Skill Development, he said.
He said impetus to employment and income generation will help contain the problems like insurgency in the North Eastern Region (NER).
The North-Eastern states need to create a conducive environment for private investments which should make the investors feel safe and their problems are addressed. It will give a big boost to investments, he said.
He suggested the revival of North Eastern Regional Agricultural Marketing Corporation Limited (NERAMAC) for marketing of agriculture produce.
The North Eastern Region Community Resource Management Project (NERCORMP) with the Self Help Groups can extend help in this effort to increase the income and employment generation in the region, he said.
