Nagaland’s Hornbill Festival will be showcased at the G20 by India
When India assumes the G20 presidency on December 1, it plans to showcase Nagaland’s famous Hornbill Festival.
A meeting between Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphu Rio and G20 chief coordinator Harsh Vardhan Shringla discussed showcasing the Hornbill Festival on a global scale.
Shringla discussed the possibility of bringing India’s most prestigious multilateral event to the northeastern state, Nagaland’s Hornbill Festival, which takes place from December 1 to 10.
It is also worth mentioning that the Hornbill Festival coincides with the official beginning of India’s presidency of the G20 group.
As a result of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s directive to use the G20 to showcase India’s rich and diverse cultural landscape and not restrict it to major urban cities, Shringla is contacting various states to identify opportunities for promoting the country’s cultural heritage at G20 events.
A statement quoted Shringla as stating, “India’s participation in the G20 provides Nagaland with an opportunity to showcase its unique culture, history and tourism potential.”
