Department of Industries & Commerce in collaboration with start-up India, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, department for promotion of Industries & Internal Trade (DPIIT) GoI, commenced a two-day workshop on “women capacity development” from January 22 at SIRD conference hall, Kohima.

According to DIPR report, chief secretary, Temjen Toy in his key note address stated that the world was changing and unless one keeps pace with the change, very soon it would be useless and irrelevant. 

Toy mentioned that information technology has reached the doorsteps which is a huge advantage and the Nagas were equally accessible to all information with the rest of the world. In this regard he said that, it was up to the individual on how to make use of this technology and appealed to the entrepreneurs to take advantage of the workshop.  

He also appraised the students that at the end of the day, it was hard work and perseverance that paves the way to success and urged them to ignite their minds by seeing and hearing the success stories of the entrepreneurs. Toy also mentioned that though it was a small start-up for women entrepreneurs, Naga women in the near future can take the lead making themselves known to the society and to the world.

Principal secretary, Industries & Commerce, Lithrongla G. Chishi, in her opening remark said the workshop was an opportunity for entrepreneurs who have chosen to pursue their passion. Chishi, further mentioned that people know about business but most of all hardly knew about great entrepreneurship, commitment level and how to go about it, so this workshop was a great advantage  to learn, understand and make entrepreneurship grow and make a difference not only  in Nagaland but also outside too.
