3-day Corporate Social Responsibility conclave postponed; new dates later

The State government has announced postponement of the much-anticipated three-day Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Bankers and Investors meet at Kohima that was scheduled from Monday.
Informing this in a statement, minister panning & coordination, land revenue and parliamentary affairs, Neiba Kronu said that conclave had to be postponed as Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, who was supposed to attend, had rescheduled her visit to some unforeseen circumstances. Regretting the postponement and apologising for the inconvenience caused, Kronu said new dates for the conclave would be announced once Sitharaman’s fresh schedule was finalised.
Kronu said the conclave had multiple objectives of bringing in innovation and private capital in meeting developmental challenges of the State, forging long-term partnerships that would help in further integrating the State’s economic players with the national value chains and promoting private industry in the State.
He said the event was planned in close coordination with various ministries and departments of the Central government, Invest India and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). Intensive efforts were put in by all partners for reaching out to companies and CSR implementing agencies both within the State and outside. Kronu said it was encouraged and very happy at the enthusiastic response and concern of the corporate world.
He said chief minister Neiphiu Rio had personally invited the Union Finance Minister for the CSR & Investment Conclave at the stage of conceptualisation, which she had consented and thereafter guided the State government planning the event. He said the State government appreciated the guidance and positive contributions of the minister and looked forward to her continued support.
The government was also appreciative of the commitments made by the companies and their partners, and the special efforts of senior officials of the Central government and the companies to schedule travel to the State for the summit.
While expressing regret, Kronu hoped that the support given and the commitments made by the companies would continue and there would be redoubled participation in the rescheduled event.
