New Delhi, (Global News) Reiterating commitment of his government to transform the state into a major industrial and export hub by facilitating businesses and creating an investor-friendly environment, the Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Friday said that the state government is further strengthening the single window system for facilitating the investors.
Interacting with the delegates during fifth meeting of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Northern Region Council here today, the Chief Minister said that earlier single window service was merely a sham, devoid of any meaningful purpose, which not only demoralized the potential investors but also hampered the industrial development of the state. However, he said that his government is making all out efforts to ensure that investors get all the facilities at this window smoothly and without any sort of corrupt practices. Bhagwant Mann invited the captains of industry to invest in the state and become a part of industrial evolution and progress.
The Chief Minister lauded the efforts undertaken by the CII in supporting industry and creating a business conducive environment. He said that the Punjab Government is undertaking myriad efforts to foster an investment ecosystem in the state, create suitable employment opportunities for all, provide access to quality infrastructure, enable greater transparency and accountability in governance. Bhagwant Mann said that Punjab is ranked third in Ease of Logistics in the country as the State has a strong logistics backbone with five Inland Container Depots (ICDs).
