Speaking as a special invitee at the inaugural function of Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industries (DCCI) new office at Ana Ki complex, 2nd floor, Khermahal, Dimapur on Sunday, MLA and former chief minister of Nagaland, K.L. Chishi said DCCI should let industries boost up and also allow genuine industries to come to Dimapur and its surrounding areas.
Highlighting the present scenario of industries in state, Chishi said many industries have been closed down and those remaining are small and medium scale and as a result we have no production and asked that in this situation how trade and commerce can flourish.
Taking as an example the poor condition of Tuli paper mill, Chishi asked when Jagiroad can flourish so well by collecting bamboos from Nagaland than why not our paper industry can flourish.
We have many weavers and blessed with handicraft products but today with modernization many of our valuable practices are disappearing, he lamented.
In regard to all these Chishi said Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industries which has been formed to look after or focus on commerce and industries should now encourage local producers instead of bringing things from outside the state.
We have very fertile soil in Dimapur and have been blessed with indigenous products and agriculture and now Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industries should encourage the traders with our indigenous products, agriculture and handicrafts, he said.
He also asked the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industries to encourage congenial atmosphere to let industries flourish in state and enhance production and develop the economic condition of people and society.
Further, asked the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industries to keep the poor section of people in mind and not to neglect the consumers or put them in disadvantage.
Also speaking on the present law and order situation in the society, Chishi said now guns are too many in our land and almost everyday is a day of shooting and encounter with unwanted atmosphere. Law enforcement is very much needed in Dimapur and Kohima, he urged and also asked the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industries, Dimapur Municipal Council, Naga Council and district administration to work together to form a peaceful environment and provide relief and safety to the people living in the society.
