Regional Perspective

The communities of this region need to develop their own unique answers to their problems instead of depending on others. But this cannot happen in isolation.The states of the North East need to look to each other and to their neighbors in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Tibet and Nepal for they must grow together. The markets, skills, natural resources and other advantages need to knit together if the region, one of the poorest in the world, is to progress.
