Speaking during the workshop, IIT Guwahati, officiating director, Parameswar K Iyer, said: “North East region is blessed with rich biodiversity and every state has its own unique agricultural products with the possibility to tap into the world market. However, the problem is that they perish before they reach to the market due to lack of storage facilities and other allied amenities. Facilitating an ecosystem of allied technologies, skilling of manpower in niche technologies and promoting technology aided development will provide thrust for this region and make it an engine of growth in multiple sectors.”
During his address, TIFAC, executive director, Pradeep Srivastava, Executive Director, said:“During Amritkal, on the directives of Hon’ble PM, TIFAC has initiated the process for drafting the Technology Vision 2047 document with the broad vision of achieving Technology Impendence by 2047”
