In a bid to take forward the Act East policy, the second edition of the three-day North East India Festival, 2022 will be held in the Thailand capital Bangkok from July 29.

The festival marks 75 years of India’s diplomatic relationship with Thailand and aims to promote trade, tourism, cultural exchange and people-to-people meet between the two countries, North East India Festival’s Chief Organiser Shyamkanu Mahanta said at a press conference here on July 23.

“North East is going to Thailand to explore the shared history and to promote trade, travel, business and people to people exchange” he said.

The inaugural session of the festival, to be hosted by the Indian embassy in Thailand, will be held on July 29 at the Centara Grand Hotel in Bangkok.

The first edition of the festival, organised by the socio-cultural Trust Trend MMS, was held in 2019.
