Frankfurt, June 12: Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, who is visiting Europe to attract multinational investors to Himachal Pradesh, especially for the upcoming 'Global Investors Meet', has organised a roadshow, in collaboration with the Consulate General of India and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), here.

The 'Global Investors' Meet,' to be held in Dharamshala this year, would focus on a wide range of upcoming and thriving sectors like Tourism, AYUSH and Wellness, Manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals, Real Estate, Hydro Power, Agro and Food Processing.

Thakur, on his first foreign visit, on Tuesday met German Minister for Agriculture, Tourism, Transport and Viticulture (wine making) for the State of Rhineland, Dr Volker Wissing at Frankfurt, as part of the outreach activity for attracting investments to the state.

Addressing the roadshow, the Chief Minister held that Himachal Pradesh holds immense potential for global stakeholders in terms of investments, tourism industries, information technology, service sector, food processing, pharma and power.

The 'Single Window Acts' in Himachal Pradesh reflects the strong commitment of the state government to ensure efficiency, transparency, time-bound and accountability in providing services to investors, Thakur claimed.

The Chief Minister further said the state offers attractive incentives under the Industrial Policy to boost investment in the state and the government has recently amended the policy to make it more attractive and industry-friendly.

Thakur chose to visit Germany over any other country first because 'Made in Germany' was a trademark of quality, recognised around the world and the State Government was keen to replicate the same in the state.

Thakur said the German companies were considered as master of planning, therefore, the state was willing to implement the same culture by having collaboration with more German companies.

India has more than 1,600 Indo-German collaborations and over 600 Joint ventures operating in India. (UNI)
