Aizawl: Mizoram sports minister Robert Romawia Royte said that the state government would recognise music as industry so as to earn revenue by including investors in the field.
Addressing a closing function and prize distribution ceremony of SEKI Inter village music contest at Vanapa Hall here on Friday night, Royte said the state government is making massive effort to promote music tourism.
He said that the MNF government headed by chief minister Zoramthang is planning to construct a music centre where sophisticated musical instruments will be installed for musicians and artistes.
Slamming the erstwhile Congress government, he said it did not take massive effort to promote music infrastructure owing to which musician and artistes have been demoralised and disappointingly forsaken the government.
“The present government headed by Zoramthanga would promote music and music tourism and music jam rooms and instruments would be made accessible to all interested youths,” he said.
Royte further said that music tourism will be a good exposure for Mizoram’s good image and promotion of tourism. He said that world Christmas concert can be organized in view of the auspicious occasion.
