He also invited all industry representatives to attend the Progressive Punjab Investors Summit scheduled for February 23 and 24, 2023.

According to the latest Business Reforms Action Plan (BRAP) report of the Centre, Punjab offers one of the most competitive rates of power for all industries and is recognised as one of the top achievers in significantly improving its ease of doing business, reported the Tribune.

“The state government has undertaken simplification and digitisation of processes for compliances, decriminalisation of minor offences and elimination of redundant laws and overlapping regulations,” CM said.
