New Delhi, Oct 18 (KNN) To attract more investments in Himachal Pradesh, the state government has decided to organize a mega investors’ meet at Dharmshala most likely in the month of February next year to showcase the state as potential investment destination for the entrepreneurs.
The state chief minister Jai Ram Thakur said “the government would organize a mega investor’s meet at Dharamshala that would help in creating international and national visibility about state readiness to attract the investors.”
Being well connected with upcoming Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor from Amritsar to Kolkata and five major potential state industrial corridors/hubs situated very near to this corridor, Himachal Pradesh will prove to be a potential investment destination for investors.
While reviewing the investment targets in the state, CM said that in order to attract investment in the state, a high power committee would be constituted soon under his chairmanship and a subcommittee under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary.
Also, he added that the government would also review the existing industrial promotion policies in the state to make Himachal Pradesh a favorite destination for the investors.
The state has comparative advantage for investment such as good governance, investor friendly environment, ease of doing business, power surplus State and skilled and talented human resources, he added.
Besides, Chief Minister Thakur also launched Him Pragati portal to fast track clearances and approvals of various developmental projects being effectively monitored by the Chief Minister’s office.
He said this portal would ensure effective online monitoring system for fast clearance and approval of various developmental projects such as industries, tourism, power and other infrastructure projects.
The investors and potential entrepreneurs could easily login to this portal and know the status of their projects, CM added.
