“The training programmes for the women would strengthen our society base and enable the women of the area to not only become financially independent, but confident as well’, Mr. Garg said.

The district will now aim for the benefits of the central government initiative, One District One Product, as IIM Indore will design the marketing and branding strategies for the local products. This will especially help the administration to increase the export of bamboo. Simultaneously, the MoU signed between the district administration and the institute will aim at the overall growth and progress of the district, thereby adding value to not just the market, but the overall economy and general lifestyle.

Apart from the ‘One District One Product’ initiative, the collaboration will also extend to rejuvenation of tourism in the district. From the tourism perspective, Harda brings together tribal culture, natural beauty, ancient temples of historical significance, to give visitors a plethora of experiences. So, there’s much to explore and work on.
