Advisor of Tourism and Art & Culture, H. Khehovi Yepthomi called on South-East Asian countries, and states of North East India to make use of each other’s proximity and shared borders to develop each other’s economies through tourism and by creating strong cultural ties.

A press release from the advisor’s press secretary stated that Khehovi was speaking at the inauguration dinner of the Northeast Cultural Festival at Bangkok Central World 2019, in Thailand on February 8. Calling it one of the biggest events of the North East region of India, Khehovi said it had been created to highlight the potentials of tourism and resources that the region has to offer. Besides this, he added that the festival also allows for states of the North East to unite and establish ties with each other and the rest of India. 

Inviting delegates to visit the Nagaland stall for food items, souvenirs, cultural dances, music etc., he offered another invitation for the North Eastern states and South-East Asian countries to visit Nagaland, “not just for our International Hornbill Festival, but for more than that, to broaden out horizons and associations with each other.”

Referring to the festival, Khehovi pointed out that many, including himself, had travelled long distances to be there from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries, Thailand and NE India. This, he said, served as a reminder of how important the purpose of the festival was. “The main significance of all of your presence is to set up new friendships within our neighbouring countries and states to promote tourism while having a good time and finding new experiences at this event that will take place till the 10th of this month” he stated.

The festival ended on  February 10, and the inaugural event witnessed ‘Pretty Ryhthm’, a Sulimi four member band, performing a folk fusion presentation. Thirty cultural teams, nine Tourism officials and Joyti Kailesh (RC of Nagaland House), also attended the program. This program was sponsored by the department of Tourism, government of Nagaland.

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.
