|The Centre for Development and Peace Studies and the Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi jointly organized a workshop titled “Consultative Workshop on Sub Regional Economic Cooperation: Prospects and Challenges with reference to North East India and Bangladesh” at Guwahati on 30 August 2014.
The Workshop focused on regional cooperation and its importance and necessity to be a part of the political agenda and political discourse in India. The expectation was to figure relations with Bangladesh more prominently in political and public discussions in the state capitals of Northeast as well as in the Parliament.
The Workshop was participated by Ministers, MLAs and political party leaders from three northeastern states—Assam, Meghalaya and Mizoram. Besides the political leaders, several members from trade and industry bodies, economists, sociologists, academicians and traders directly involved in export-import activities with Bangladesh also took active participation and gave valuable inputs at the Workshop.
