In order to propel the agrarian state into a development trajectory, Punjab Industries and Commerce Minister Gurkirat Singh on Wednesday reiterated his commitment to keep the business-first approach towards the investors and make them partners in Punjab’s Story of Progress.

“Punjab is not only headed towards a promising future, but the State Government will take all possible steps to ensure that it becomes the industrial powerhouse that powers the country,” said Gurkirat Singh, while addressing an Interactive session at Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Chandigarh.

 Punjab Government has recently reached the historic milestone of having investments worth Rs 1.02 lakh crores under various stages of implementation, he said, adding that more than 52% of these projects have achieved commercial production, while another 36% are in various stages of construction.

 “I am very hopeful that India’s leading industrial houses with national/international presence but are not yet present in Punjab will soon make Punjab their home,” said Gurkirat Singh.
