Industrialists and investors attending the groundbreaking-cum-inauguration ceremony of 24 industrial units in the state on Thursday by Chief Minister Raghubar Das have posed complete faith in government’s changed pro-investor approach for renewed industrial development in last two years. Textile major Orient Craft Chairman Sudhir Dhingra appeared moving a step further to claim that the State was having all the potential to leave Bangladesh behind and become top textile exporter in the world.
This is a historical day for garment industry in the State. The CM had expressed worries during a meeting with him in July last year over migration of unemployed young men, women and even teens to different parts of country in search of jobs and used to get ill-employed there. This is why the industry is coming up with huge garment production unit with employment capacity of over 15,000 in next six months.
He further added that the garment sector was among the quickest employment generating industries as it required only a maximum of 90 days to provide basic training to someone and make him worth employable in this industry. All the garment sector companies coming to the State carry a history and reputation of their own, and I strongly believe that we can change the fate of sector and people of State with support of the government, says Dhingra.
Ranjan Medicant Super Specialty Hospital Managing Director also confirmed changed industrial scenario in the State and said that the government had done wonderful job in attracting the investment whose trust is setting up a 500-bed super specialty hospital in Bokaro.
Footwear company SKF manufacturer promoter Aftab Alam, Kaveri Agri Warehousing (India) Managing Director G Suman Rao and other investors also posed faith in the way Government machinery had been functioning relentlessly to take MoUs done during Global Investors Summit (GIS) on February this year forward.
