Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on has said that entrepreneurs willing to invest in Haryana would be able to select a place of their choice for setting up industry.
"We are determined to create industry and entrepreneur-friendly atmosphere in the state and the recently launched new Entrepreneur Promotion Policy-2015 is a definitive pointer in this direction," he told a group of entrepreneurs at Vancouver in Canada on Saturday.
The chief minister, who is leading a delegation to the US and Canada to attract investors to Haryana, interacted with mediapersons after meeting members of Canadian business groups.
Khattar said that Haryana enjoys locational advantage as the state surrounds the national capital and has close proximity to the Indira Gandhi international airport. "We have recently launched new entrepreneur promotion policy with its key features of further easing the ease-of-doing business, single-window clearance and many more. Besides, we are going to ease everything, including the taxation laws pertaining to the state government and other things that could attract entrepreneurs," he said.
Expressing satisfaction over the successful meetings the delegation had with business groups and leading MNCs in the US, he said that many foreign investors had evinced keen interest in investing in Haryana in sectors like infrastructure, housing, information technology, education, medicare and healthcare etc.
"We have signed four MoUs with Google, CISCO, United Technologies and Applied Materials, which offer quite a measure of our successful visit to the US. The key purpose of the delegation is to project Haryana as a preferred destination for overseas investment. We have visited New York, Washington, Maryland, Connecticut and San Franscisco and now come to Canada," Khattar said.
