Important developments:

In this summit, sports were given the recognition as Industry for the first time in India, thus opening the doors for choosing sports as a prospective career option. They also decided to exert sports as a tool for women empowerment, so as to bring about more participation from women. 

Opportunity for the North-East India region:

The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports recognized the unique sports culture in the North-East India.

Khareithan Phungchamnao emphasizes on how Nagas should grab this opportunity as our skills and passion for sports is already inherent, thus, wouldn’t require as much grounding compared to the rest of India. He further urges that Nagas should formulate talents and put in great efforts to go into main-stream, since sports have been recognized as an industry now. 

The event was sponsored by Ministry of Youth Affairs Co-Sponsored by Star Sports and DD Sports.
