New Delhi: With the theme of ‘Made in Northeast’, the 7th edition of Young Leaders Connect will be held at The Grand, Vasant Kunj in New Delhi on November 2 this year.
The conclave will be chaired by Union minister of state Kiren Rijiju and co-chaired by Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma and former Indian football captain Bhaichung Bhutia.
The event’s key sector areas of focus are — agro-allied and food processing, handloom & handicraft, tourism & hospitality, and sports & entertainment.
YLC is an annual conclave where young change-makers and leaders share their ideas and experiences in order to visualise where they would like to see Northeast vis-à-vis India in the future, plan a roadmap, and strategise on interventions at the grassroots and policy level.
The initiative brings together young leaders from the region and rest of the country, and also engages policy makers, strategists, entrepreneurs, professionals, members of academia, and students to join the development discourse.
