The agreement was signed on the sidelines of the 6th Yomgo River Festival, one of the most popular river carnivals in the state that was also launched in Kabu village, West Siang's cleanest village, near here on Friday. Earlier the festival of the Yomgo River was called the Siang River Festival.

The meeting was also attended by Arunachal Pradesh agricultural minister Tage Taki and Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar.

The KVIC further said in the statement that the center will start operation with 25 spinning wheels and five looms and provide direct employment to 35 women.

“As Chullyu, which located at the foothills of the Himalayas, has the potential of producing premium quality honey and the Khadi centre will also generate a sustainable source of income for the locals,” the statement added.

It further added that bee-keeping activities in Chullyu will start by providing 200 bee-boxes to 20 farmers after training.
