Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal today said Punjab would soon emerge as the most favoured investment destination, which would transform the state’s economy and positively impact the lives of its people.
Interacting with a group of visiting entrepreneurs with roots in Punjab at Udyog Bhawan here last evening, the minister said Punjab had taken huge strides in both traditional as well as IT and ITES sectors.
The state was on the right path, he said, adding that the investor-friendly policies had already firmed up investments worth Rs 50,000 crores since the Congress took over in March, 2017.
Appreciating the steps to ensure ease of doing business, the delegation expressed hope that this would lead in augmenting a fresh wave of investments in Punjab.
Earlier welcoming the delegation, ACS Investment Promotion Vini Mahajan said it was high time to go for industrialisation in a big way as Punjab’s traditional agriculture economy had reached a plateau.
