From 1-3 March 2023, Aizawl, the capital city of Mizoram, will host the second of four B20 India events scheduled in the Northeast. Business 20 (B20) is the official G20 dialogue forum for the global business community, representing the G20 business community and mobilizing the views of global business leaders on global economic and trade governance. The B20 provides tangible policy suggestions to each rotating presidency in order to boost economic growth and development.
The B20 event in Aizawl will highlight the opportunities for multilateral business partnerships that the state can offer to delegates in areas such as urban planning, infrastructure, bamboo, startups, skill development, nursing, and paramedics. The three-day event is expected to see around 500 participants, ranging from Ministers, senior Government officials, diplomats, and representatives from the business community.
The State Govt made extensive preparations for the three-day event. The event will start with a cultural evening and a welcome dinner at Raj Bhavan on the day of the arrival of delegates. On the second day, there will be a B20 conference at Mizoram State University, followed by a cultural program.
The Chapchar Kut, which is a spring festival of Mizoram, will be showcased to the delegates at AR Ground on day three, concluding the B20 conference in Aizawl.
The four B20 events slated for the Northeast are intended to highlight the untapped potential and opportunities of the Northeastern states. This event in Aizawl is expected to showcase the state’s potential for multilateral business partnerships and provide tangible policy suggestions to boost economic growth and development. The B20 event in Aizawl is an excellent platform for businesses to explore and expand their reach, thereby strengthening India’s position as a major player in the global economy.
