Chandigarh, May 20 (PTI) With a view to inviting investors to the state, a delegation led by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar will visit Singapore and Hong Kong from May 21-25.

Also, a global investors summit would be organised in the state in January 2018.

Interacting with media persons here today, the chief minister said that foreign investment would lead to rapid development of Haryana as well as the country.

“More foreign investment would lead to rapid development of Haryana as well as of the country and ample employment opportunities would be generated for the youth,” he said.

The state government had implemented an industrial policy for investors so that they might not face any difficulty in setting up their ventures in the state, he said.

Khattar also said that in terms of ease of doing business, the ranking of Haryana has gone up from fifteenth to sixth place.

“This improved ranking is the result of congenial atmosphere created for investors”, he added.

He said that one roof system has been set up under Haryana Enterprises Promotion Centre where all clearances related to setting up of industries are provided in maximum 45 days.

This system has immensely benefited the investors and would continue in future, he added.
