He urged upon them to build a healthy ecosystem for investment and entrepreneurship. Stating that Nagaland’s position as the gateway of South-East Asia offers the State unique geo-economic opportunities, Ravi said that Nagaland must prioritise developing its precious
human resource, which, unfortunately, has suffered a relative decline in recent decades.

Governor Ravi, who is also the interlocutor for the ongoing Naga peace talks, said illicit gangs and guns and institutionalized corruption must be eliminated and a healthy ecosystem of investment and entrepreneurship must be built in the State.

In order to make this happen, Ravi said “We must eliminate illicit gangs and guns and institutionalized corruption from the State.” Stating that Nagaland’s position as the gateway of South-East Asia offers the State unique geo-economic opportunities, Ravi said that Nagaland must prioritise developing its precious human resource, which unfortunately, has suffered a relative decline in recent decades.

The Governor also expressed heartfelt gratitude to the doctors, nurses and all the members of health services, and other frontline workers for risking their lives and relentlessly fighting the extraordinary menace of COVID-19 pandemic and saving precious human lives.

He said that the grass root organisations and civil societies including the Church and other faith based organisations had rendered commendable services. The governor reminded that vaccine, which has been scientifically established, was the only safeguard against severity of COVID-19 as of now. It has been amply proven that a vaccinated person is less likely to be infected and even if infected much less likely to need hospitalization, he said.

Ravi appealed to the youths of the State to race ahead keeping pace with time, technology and contemporary realities. He urged them to maintain strong emotional and cultural bonds with their own custom, tradition and identity and overcome the narcissism of minor differences.
Speaking on the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics, the Governor said the sportspersons, including those from the North East, have made the country proud with their stellar performances.

Recounting how Dr Talimeren Ao raised the Indian tricolour and led the Indian football contingent at the London Olympics in 1948, Ravi said the youths of the State have enormous sports potential. Given the right environment they can do wonders and make the State and the country proud, he added.
