Two-day global meet of Non-Resident Biharis next year
PATNA: Hundreds of Non-Resident Biharis (NRBs) from across the world will gather here early next year to share their views on the state and its development, officials said Sunday.
The Bihar Foundation is organising the two-day global meet of NRBs Feb 18-19, 2012.
Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, who is the chairman of the foundation, said they have started disseminating information about the meeting in advance to ensure that a large number of NRBs participate in the event.
“NRBs from across the world who have excelled in their fields and made a difference towards development would be invited to share their views regarding the state and its development,” Modi said.
Indian Administrative Service officer C. Lalsawta, who is the CEO of Bihar Foundation, said it was a “single window system of the state government to interact with NRBs around the world”.
Lalsawta said they expect a gathering of hundreds of experts and investors who are concerned about the development of Bihar.
He also said that all the Bihar Foundation chapters in the US, Britain, Australia, Canada, South Korea and Qatar have began preparations to invite NRBs for the meet.
