Ranju Kumar Bharali

Abstract :

North East India comprising eight North Indian States covering 8 percent of India’s land surface and 3.1 percent of India’s population is a centre stage of India’s Act East Policy as this region is a gateway to South East Asia. This region has great potential to develop not just as a self sustaining economic unit but also critical for overall development of the country. North East India has vast natural resources. The region is endowed with rich hydro power potential, coal, petroleum, natural gas and other minerals, forest wealth, horticulture etc. As about 98 percent of the region is covered with international border it has great potential for trade and collaboration. Again the region has vast potential for all types of tourism. Inspite of all these, the region is relatively backward. This might be due to lack of proper developmental strategy and policy. To formulate proper roadmap and strategy for development it is very necessary to analyse the strength, weakness, opportunities, and threat (SWOT) of North East India. This paper makes an attempt for SWOT analysis of development in North East India which may be helpful in making proper policy initiatives and strategy for overall development of the region
