The BJP-led central Government’s push has played a significant role in this major development.
Almost 20 bridges, various key stretches erected along the region have immensely benefitted the frontier state, to stand at the fore for countering the aggressive neighbouring country – China.
The Pema Khandu government has also focused on developing the border villages situated along the Indo-China border through better road connectivity, drinking water, health & educational developments, and installation of micro hydel projects and Solar Lights along with these sensitive areas.
Arunachal Pradesh Government has immensely stressed the development of its regions through digital infrastructure.
Arunachal CM Pema Khandu launched the centrally-funded State Wide Area Network (SWAN).
The main objective of this project is to provide secure digital connectivity to all the district headquarters and local administrative centres across the state, therefore, aim to establish 184 SWAN points of presence in the state.
Arunachal Pradesh assembly is the first in the northeast & third in the country to have successfully implemented the National e-Vidhan Application (NeVA) project. With its commencement, the state cabinet meetings have gone paperless, thereby saving time and papers.
NeVA is a workflow system deployed on the National Informatics Centre (NIC) Cloud which helps the Chair of the House to smoothly conduct the proceedings of the House.
Rich in mineral reserves and resources, the state’s economy has also developed under the governance of Arunachal CM Pema Khandu.
The location provides opportunities for international trade with Asian countries such as Myanmar, Bhutan, and China.
Textiles and handicrafts from the state are in demand across neighbouring countries.
However, Arunachal Pradesh remains to be the highest carbon sink state in the country providing clean oxygen, as 82% of its region is surrounded by a green cover, thereby playing a crucial role in challenging the grave impacts of global warming.
Arunachal Pradesh – the cold, forested landscape hiding unparalleled diversity with several specialist species, rain forests & ageless green cover, countless valleys, and enormous diversity of flora & fauna is considered to be a hilly track that is rich in natural resources, especially in mineral reserves.
This region is believed to play a major role in fulfilling Prime Minister Modi’s bold pledge of achieving a net-zero carbon goal by 2070.
According to the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), FDI inflows to the northeast states1 totalled US$ 142 million between April 2000 and March 2021. The state attracted an FDI inflow worth US$ 5.55 million between October 2019 and March 2021.
The Department of Industries has set up District Industries Centre’s (DICs) and Sub-District Industries Centre’s (Sub-DICs) for the industrial development of the small scale, tiny, and village industries.
Arunachal Pradesh is the highest carbon sink state in the country providing clean oxygen to all with 82% area covered with forest. It also plays a major role in challenging the global warming impact.
