JK goes south, woos Chennai industrialists

Continuing its efforts to project Jammu and Kashmir as an ideal industrial destination, the Government today connected north with south India by reaching out to top business firms in Chennai here with the promise to provide the right industrial environment for setting up their units. 

The event is part of the pre-summit road-shows in the run up to ‘J&K Global Investors’ Summit 2020’, to be held later this year.

The event opened with a riveting five-minute film which captured Jammu & Kashmir’s clarion call for investment in the industrial sector.   

In his keynote address, advisor to the Lt Governor K K Sharma assured investors about further entrenching ease of doing business to build investment confidence. Calling upon Chennai investors to be part of J&K growth story, the Advisor handed out an assurance on providing fool-proof safety and security to those who are inclined to set up business units in J&K.  

O S Kumaran, a leading Chennai-based industrialist and Farooq Amin, a local industrialist from Jammu and Kashmir led the experience sharing from the private sector. The event created quite a buzz amongst the top business fraternity from Chennai with 90 top industrialists participating and expressing keen interest to sign MoUs worth Rs1140 crores.

The road-show was followed by one-on-one B2G and G2B meetings with top industry groups including BRKINS, Geo-Map System (P) Ltd, Dream Valley Golf & Resorts Pvt Ltd, TAIPA (Tower and Infrastructure Providers), TS TRANSCO, ASP Enterprise, ABC India Pvt Ltd, along with other leading business players. The pre-summit road-shows will conclude on March 9 in Ahmedabad.
