Chandigarh, Dec 25 (IANS) Around 35 MNCs from Japan, South Korea and other countries will participate in the “Happening Haryana Global Investors’ Summit-2016” to be organised in Gurgaon on March 7 and 8 next year, a state minister said on Friday.
Finance Minister Abhimanyu said that besides the MNCs, over 200 investors from Haryana will also participate in the summit.
To attract investors, Haryana is offering incentives in fields like food processing, industrial parks, electronics, health, civil aviation, solar energy, ware-housing and skill development.
Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar will be visiting China and Japan from January 17 to 21 next year to meet top brass of companies in both countries.
Over the last nearly four decades, Haryana has emerged as a favoured destination for Japanese majors to invest in the state, given the proximity of the state’s national capital region (NCR) belt to the country’s capital New Delhi.
The first big name to establish base in Haryana, Maruti-Suzuki, piloted by Japanese car manufacturer Suzuki was a runaway success.
The big names that have, over the years, lined up to invest in Haryana include automobile giant Suzuki, Honda, Canon, Yakult, Denso, Mitsubishi, Toyo, Daikin, Yokohama, Showa, Nippon, Kansai Paints, Asahi, Stanley and many others.
