World Has Not Seen Potential Of North-East: Goyal


“After seeing the wonderful work that our artisans, weavers, handicrafts persons are doing in Meghalaya, I can only say that what we are seeing is just a tip of the iceberg, the potential is huge, your capabilities are bigger than that I can see, the capacities that you have demonstrated are immense,” said Goyal.

The Union Ministry of Commerce and Industry on Friday at the launch event of the ‘Meghalayan Age’ store in New Delhi said that the world has not seen the huge potential of the North-East region. 

Goyal stated that the Mulberry Silk of Meghalaya besides Shawls, Bamboo, Handicrafts and various other unique products of the Northeast will have a huge market not only for visitors from India but also from across the world. 

Goyal quoted Prime Minister Narendra Modi that India cannot develop until the North-East and Eastern parts of India come up to the level of Western and Southern India. “He has, in his heart and in his commitment, such a deep passion for the development of the North-East and a better future for the people of the North-East that it is compulsory for all of us Ministers to focus our attention to see what more we can do for the North-East,” Goyal said. 

Lauding the “minimalist design” of the state’s exclusive prime store in the heart of the national capital, Goyal praised Chief Minister Conrad Sangma for setting up the store that will provide the local artisans and more than 43,000 weavers of the state a window to showcase the rich culture, heritage, art and ethnic products of Meghalaya and the store will support the state’s cottage industry.

“After seeing the wonderful work that our artisans, weavers, handicrafts persons are doing in Meghalaya, I can only say that what we are seeing is just a tip of the iceberg, the potential is huge, your capabilities are bigger than that I can see, the capacities that you have demonstrated are immense,” said Goyal.
