The South Korean minister said the government would ask Korean companies who had already invested in India to explore investment options in Punjab.

Sukhbir invited the Korean government to facilitate investment in smart cities in Punjab.

“We are committed to moving fast to facilitate investors who want to set up such cities,” the Punjab deputy CM said.

The deputy chief minister also inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Indian Chamber of Commerce in Korea (ICCK) to promote Korean investment in Punjab.

As part of this MoU, the Invest Punjab would establish a permanent representative office in South Korea.
