India has made rapid progress in all its existing industrial sectors making an effective impact on the economy and social factors. The recent slow-down in economy followed by disruptions during Covid, expects a charged and revised approach by the industries and Government. Combined with the existing global competition and shifting of the powerful supply chains has presented the country with a lot of opportunities.
The disruptions due to Covid-19 and lockdown have opened doors for many new sectors. Preponed investment in areas of smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0 is one of the clear indications for this trend. Similarly, digital technologies and transformation have made an indent in almost everyone’s life and created an entirely new market with sizeable demand and consumption, creating a positive flux in economy.
Tamil Nadu is industrially advanced with commendable contribution to the domestic markets and is also one of the top three exporting states in the country. Tamil Nadu has a robust framework to excel in the key sectors and is well prepared to tap the opportunities in the emerging sectors, sunrise sectors and other new high growth sectors for the state (electronics, petrochemicals, healthcare etc.)
With the new state industrial policy unveiled, there are high hopes that Tamil Nadu will continue its remarkable run as a favourite destination for investors in the new world grappling with Covid-19. Combined with the new export policy and the coastal advantage, this is going to strengthen the State’s bid to boost exports.
Against this background, CII is organising the CII Tamil Nadu Annual Members meet with the theme “Industry Next - Advantage Tamil Nadu”, on the 3rd March 2021 on Virtual Platform.
The objective of this conference is to facilitate a platform for industries, government and key stakeholders to deliberate on strengthening the key and emerging sectors for industrial, economic and social growth.
