Haryana attracted $73 billion FDI: Chief Secy

Chandigarh, November 1

The Haryana Government is committed to creating a progressive business environment in the state and it has formulated an investor-friendly industrial and business promotion policy.

This information was shared by Haryana Chief Secretary Vijai Vardhan during the first meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Forum of Heads of Regions. The Chief Secretary was representing India at this meeting which was hosted by Russia.

Owing to the consistent efforts of the state government, Haryana has attracted foreign direct investment (FDI) of $73 billion during 2019-20. Haryana thus is the fifth largest economy in the country.

In his address, Vardhan welcomed the initiative to organise this dialogue between the Area Heads of the member countries by SCO. This forum would pave the way for better cooperation and coordination between member countries and regions, he added.

He said there was immense potential for cooperation between Haryana and SCO member countries in the fields of trade and business, auto manufacturing, skill development, IT and ITES, agriculture and agro-based industries like food processing, health and animal science.

He said the state was surrounded by New Delhi from three sides and three industrially developed cities of Gurugram, Faridabad, Rohtak fall within the radius of 70 km from New Delhi International Airport. He further added that a new airport was being developed in Hisar district. Besides, the state has a rail network of more than 1,700 km and after the approval of the new Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor (HORC) project by the Government of India in September, the transport network in the state will be enhanced further. The state has a very well laid out road network, including more than 30 national highways, 11 expressways and state highways. — TNS
