This book is made up of a collection of papers painstakingly written over a year. All the contributors worked around a central question: in spite of being rich in natural resources, why do the states in north eastern region of India remain economically backward? What is the nature of structural change that the economies of these states are experiencing? What are the policy implications of this change for local governments? Is there any need for intervention in order to bring conformity between structural change and socially desirable goals? How rich is the resource base of the economies of north eastern states? How strong is the resource-industry linkage in them? Where lays the strength of the local economy? What are the options available with them for faster and sustainable development? Each state specific contribution in this volume has attempted to throw light on these issues. The book will act as a guide to the researchers, policy makers, businesses, development agencies, administrators and above all, to those who are concerned with the future of the region.
