Chamling seeks investment in peaceful Sikkim

Posted by Ramesh Khati on June 28, 2009

Gangtok (PTI): Describing Sikkim as an abode of peace and tranquility, Chief Minister Pawan Kumar Chamling has called upon the investors from across the country and abroad to set up eco-friendly industries and infrastructure in the hospitality sector in a big way.

Sikkim possesses all the requirements like peaceful law and order situation and investment-friendly economic policies which the investors should capitalise on to set up new units which will not not only benefit them, but also the state in generating additional revenues on its own, he said last night while inaugurating a five-star resort at Ranipool near here.

The state government, on its part, was committed to extend all cooperation to the prospective investors like speedy sanction of the proposed industrial units, Chamling said.

Observing that the private sector has not not been keen to come over to Sikkim to set up their units apparently due to locational disadvantage, he said that the communication and connectivity problem will soon be over as a number of projects like the greenfield airport at Pakyong, rail link upto Rangpo and an alternative highway have been lined up to meet the infrastructure requirements of the border state.

Conceding that the private sector has got to play its role for economic development of the border state and strategically crucial one, Mr. Chamling said that without industrial development the state government on its own can not not fulfil the aspirations of the people.
