The Tamil Nadu State government will release an export policy on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. This was announced by the Minister for Industries, Tamil Official Language, Tamil Culture, and Archaeology, Shri. Thangam Thennarasu in Coimbatore on Tuesday.
In his address at the ‘Industrial Growth Conclave - Western Region’, organised by the Tamil Nadu Industrial Investment Corporation (TIIC) and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), the minister said, even during the second wave of the pandemic, the State government had ensured that the exporting units were not affected. The revival of micro, small and medium-scale enterprises (MSMEs) was one of the main focus areas of the government. “We need to focus on the MSMEs for economic growth.” He went on to say that the TIIC would extend stimulus for the growth of the MSMEs. The government will work on strengthening traditional industries for their growth and supporting emerging sectors. “We want to make a happy blend of both.”
In Coimbatore, the government is looking at establishing a Defence park at Sulur, and an industrial park at Annur, and has taken up a study for a metro rail project. “We are trying to address all the issues that you have raised,” he said.
