The first two-day ‘Happening Haryana Global Investors Summit 2016‘ has kicked off in Gurgaon. 12 Countries are participating in this summit. Besides several Union Ministers, a number of leading entrepreneurs and MNCs are taking part in it. The summit comes close on the heels of the Jat quota agitation in Haryana, in which 30 people were killed and property worth crores of rupees was destroyed.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is the chief guest at the inaugural session while Khattar have delivered the keynote address. In the summit participating countries are Czech-Republic, Japan, Mauritius, New Zealand, China, Korea, Malawi, Peru, Poland, Spain, the United Kingdom and Tunisia.
While Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, Minister for Urban Development Venkaiah Naidu and Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan have addressed the inaugural session.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today called upon states to reform to attract investment, saying investors do not like policy paralysis and prefer destinations that offer more favorable business and political environment. “In addition to co-operative federalism, India has also become a competitive federalism. The future would be competitive federalism because it’s not Center-state relation, but it is states and states competing with each other in order to attract investment,” he said.
Out of total 10 parallel sect-oral sessions, 7 have organised on the first day of the summit and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar have participated in the first session on ‘Make in Haryana: Manufacturing Competitiveness’, which focused on automotive, defense manufacturing, the Railways, aerospace and ease of doing business. The second session on ‘Investment and Business Opportunities in Sunrise Sectors’ will be addressed by Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh.
