text: In the future, however, the inflow of funds provided by the central government may decrease, and the Nagas, who have got accustomed to numerous imported commodities, may be in urgent need of industries producing goods marketable outside Nagaland in order to pay for these imports. Forestry, horticulture, tea gardens, and -- in the years to come -- tourism are obvious possibilities, and some hopeful beginnings have already been made.
