The Telegraph – the no. 1 English Daily in Calcutta and the East has been a partner in progress, driving the growth potential of Northeast through “NICT” since 2005 along with the support of the Government of Assam.
NICT, the leading business-technology-leadership conference in the Northeast has been an initiative to showcase the potential of the region and help attract capital by creating a pro-business forum for regional development which embraces technology. The objective has been to bring forth the opportunities the region has to offer and provide new insights to the ongoing interventions to raise the northeast of India to higher levels of inclusive economic development.
With participation from various sectors – State Governments of the region, Central Government, Manufacturing, Services, Education, Telecom and IT, NICT has been a progressive platform stimulating knowledge based development in the region for over a decade now.
The consistent success of NICT in Guwahati inspired the genesis of NICT Agartala in 2008 and NICT Meghalaya in 2012, enthusiastically supported by the respective state Governments.
Today, NICT 2017 in Guwahati, now in it’s 13th edition is ready to welcome delegates, investors, showcase new business opportunities in the region, network with think tanks and stimulate development for aiding India’s inclusive growth story.
