With an aim to “make Nagaland a fruit hub of India”, the Entrepreneurs Associates (EA) on Friday launched its plantation project “Trees of Wealth Movement”, where 10,000 fruit trees have been adopted. The project was formally launched by minister of Planning & Co-ordination, Land Revenues & Parliamentary Affairs, Neiba Kronu at Hotel Vivor, Kohima. 

According to EA, the movement was an attempt to plant 2 million fruit trees across the state covering 200 villages by providing saplings to farmers at 50% cost with the other 50% supported by investments and CSRs.

Addressing the gathering, Neiba thanked Entrepreneurs Associates for the initiative in contributing to livelihoods of the state and climate change globally. 

The minister further stated that government jobs were no longer the solution, but this kind of activities have to be encouraged for the future.

Speaking on ‘Why Trees For Wealth?’ EA’s CEO and coordinator, Neichute Doulo said “We hope, such a movement will help our young people to see economic opportunities in our land-based economy”. 

The CEO also assured that the movement will make “Nagaland the fruit hub in India” and transform the economic landscape of the state. 

He further said that Trees for Wealth was the perfect answer to the huge unemployment crisis being faced by the state.

Also speaking on the occasion, social activist, Niketu Iralu, spoke about the need for civil societies to be engaged in movements that will benefit the society. 

During the event, a special recognition of the patrons who have adopted fruit trees to be planted across the state was also done. 

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
