    NE Bamboo industry will lead Indian’s Economic Recovery in Post-COVID era: DoNER

    The northeast region house almost 60 per cent of India’s reserve of Bamboo

    Guwahati: Bamboo industry in the Northeastern States will lead India’s recovery from the economic crisis in the Post-COVID era, said Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), Jitendra Singh on Saturday.

    The Union Minister said that the entire North-Eastern region will take a lead for India to emerge as an economic power with the support of its huge natural and human skill resources in the near future.  

    He said, “Bamboo is vital to India’s Post- COVID economy and will provide an opportunity for India to emerge as an economic power house with the support of its Bamboo and other resources, apart from the huge tourism potential the region will offer in coming season as most of the European countries are facing second wave of Corona.”

    Singh was interacting with various Self Help Groups associated with North Eastern Region Community Resource and Management Program (NERCORMP) through a Webinar on Saturday.

    He added that since the northeast region house almost 60 percent of India’s reserve of Bamboo, it is a great advantage that under Prime Minister Narendra Modi this sector will receive a major boost which it had never received since independence.

    In this regard, he referred to the amendment in the 100-year-old Indian Forest Act brought about by the Modi government in 2017, as a result of which, home grown bamboo has been exempted from it in order to enhance livelihood opportunities through bamboo.

    The central minister also promised to organize an exhibition of products of Self Help Groups in the National Capital after the Corona Pandemic is over. He also asked the women of the region to take the lead role in all spheres of economic activity due to the successful management of Corona Pandemic.
