Haryana government is focusing to boost Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and aiming to develop the state as a pharmaceutical hub, said the state Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
While speaking during a meeting with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) here virtually on Friday, the Chief Minister also said that special incentives would be given for setting up pharmaceutical industries.
Pointing out that the major area of the state falls in the NCR, he said that the state can compete with other states.
He also said that Haryana stood third in Ease of Doing Business (EODB). Besides, the state has put 18 departments under one umbrella where it is mandatory to give clearance in 45 days.
”The state has formulated the Haryana Entrepreneur and Employment Enterprises Policy and under its ambit, several facilities are being provided to the industry,” he added.
While giving more information on the same, the Chief Minister said land has been reserved for the pharma cluster in Barwala in Panchkula district. The area adjoining Nahan in Himachal Pradesh has good connectivity with the airport in Chandigarh. Besides this, a bulk drug pharma is being built in Hisar and a medical device park in Panipat.
He said the state aimed to set up a large number of such clusters at the district level under MSMEs so as to provide maximum employment opportunities to the youth.
Stating that due to MSME policy, the entrepreneurs will perform well and will also be promoted as national investors, the Chief Minister urged them to step forward and set up enterprises in Haryana.
