I am happy to know that the Northeast Rongali Nite 2016 is being organized in Singapore on 21 May 2016. This is the first time that the rich and diverse culture of the North-eastern Region in India is being presented as part of a single event in Singapore.
The North-eastern region is India’s gateway to the ASEAN which is at the core of our Act East Policy. This region thus serves as a natural link for greater engagement with the ASEAN countries, including Singapore.
I felicitat the organizers, the Assam Association Singapore, for taking this initiative. I am confident that this platform will provide an opportunity to the people from the North-eastern region in India who are now staying in Singapore to share their rich culture and in turn enrich the social fabric of Singapore
