The two-day visit to Assam by a 47-member foreign delegation, including lawmakers and officials of Africa, Europe, America and Sri Lanka, was cancelled by the External Affairs Ministry of Central Government. The high profile delegation from 27 countries was scheduled to visit Assam on 26 and 27 November. The delegation reached New Delhi on November 25 and was scheduled to leave for Guwahati the next day. But due to increase in air-fare from New Delhi to Guwahati, External Affairs Ministry cancelled the trip as they needed to spend Rs 7 lakh more. Assam government had made elaborate arrangements for the high level foreign delegation. The visit could strengthen links and cooperation between Assam and the foreign countries.
