THE State Government has decided to develop a “large cluster of land” for enabling Japanese companies set up manufacturing units in its Greater Noida expansion project (phase II).
The announcement was made at a meeting of the state ministers and senior government officials with the Japanese Ambassador to India Yasukuni Enoki here on Friday.
A meeting of senior government officials would be held in Noida on September 20 to deliberate on the issue. Moreover, the government also announced that after the September 20 meeting, all other meetings would be held in the presence of the representatives of Japanese companies keen on investing in UP.
The government also invited Enoki for an on-the–spot survey of the land being allocated for the purpose.
Speaking on the occasion, Enoki said Japanese investors were keen on setting up their units at Greater Noida rather than Noida and demanded suitable land for the projects at the earliest.
During the meeting, Enoki was told by senior government officials about the efforts being made by the state government for getting all the pending industrial projects cleared from the Union Government.
The Japanese Ambassador informed officials that corporate heavyweights such as Honda Siel India Ltd, Denso India Ltd and Yamaha Escorts Ltd and Sumitomo Corporation have already announced expansion plans for their units in Greater Noida,
The officials later informed Enoki that the State Government had decided to expedite efforts for offering 100 acres of land to Mitsui Corporation for setting up a “Free Trade Warehousing Zone” in Greater Noida.
