DOIMUKH, Nov 3: The book, ‘Rethinking Economic Development in North East India: Emerging Dynamics’, was released by Vice Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University, Professor Tamo Mibang at an event organized by RGU’s Department of Economics at Rono Hills on Friday.
The book is edited by Deepak K Mishra, Professor of Economics at JNU, New Delhi and Vandana Upadhyay, Professor of Economics at the RGU, Itanagar.
It has two publications -one International edition and the other South Asian edition -published by Routledge, and examines the development experience in the north eastern region in India in relation to the processes of globalisation and liberalisation of the economy. Bringing together researchers and scholars, from both within and outside the region, the volume offers a comprehensive and updated analysis of governance and development issues in relation to the northeastern economy.
Congratulating the department for the new book, Vice Chancellor Mibang termed the book – a marvellous work for the North east Region, adding that the North East has been ridiculed enough in terms of economic development and the book is a roadmap for economic development in the region.
“It is time that we stop complaining and demanding for things like separate time zone for NE and instead focus on the work culture”, he said.
The function was attended by deans, HoDs and faculty members from various departments of the University as well as students and research scholars of the university.
