The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge), Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), Jitendra Singh unveiled the logo and theme song for the festival “Destination North East-2020” (The Emerging Delightful Destinations). The four-day event will be formally inaugurated by Union Minister for Home Affairs Amit Shah on September 27.
The festival has been traveling across the country for the last couple of years, from Varanasi in 2019 to the Lawns of India Gate in New Delhi or in Chandigarh before that and now it will be virtually reaching to your homes this year.
Singh said that North-Eastern Region will be one of the favourite tourist and business destinations of India post COVID-19 and will be an important engine for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clarion call of Atmanirbhar Bharat by focusing on “Vocal for Local”.
He said the event “Destination North East 2020” is also an effort to make everyone explore the Local Destinations rather than going anywhere abroad.
“People should take a pledge to visit local, travel local and explore local thus giving a boost to the local tourism and hospitality industry. Remaining Corona free mostly, North East offers a very safe and attractive tourist destination in the entire world,” Singh said.
The Union Minister said that the festival is not just about tourism, but it’s an invitation to the organisations and especially to the young entrepreneurs who would like to avail the advantage of unexplored potentials of the region.
