KARUR: In a clear sign of veering away from the beaten track of textile industry, entrepreneurs here have taken another step towards charting an industrial path of diversification of activity for which the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) have promised the required technical and material support.
At a seminar recently held recently on Karur's emerging industrial avatar, speakers pointed out the district's central location coupled with good road connectivity was an ideal launch pad for diverse activities. Ushering in new industrial clusters would increase employment opportunities for skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled people in the region. Interactive session
To create a healthy atmosphere in attracting other industries to the district and to help them explore the market, the CII organised an interactive session with BHEL on ‘Opportunities in the Fabrication Industry' and creating a fabrication cluster in Karur.
The session was to understand and explore the options of having a fabrication engineering cluster here.
S. Gopinath, chairman, CII Tiruchi Zone and general manager, Operations, BHEL, Tiruchi, pointed out that the industrial sector was one of the major sectors contributing to the GDP.
He highlighted the advantages of Tamil Nadu and asked the industry to make use of the resources available here.
Creating more jobs
On the CII's national theme ‘Business for Livelihood' for 2010-11, Mr. Gopinath said the four key enablers for faster, sustainable and inclusive growth over the medium term were education and employability to develop a qualified talent pool and innovation and entrepreneurship to create more jobs and livelihoods.
The CII Tiruchi zone was working towards the development of the central districts of Tamil Nadu into a major industrial hub and harnessing their untapped industrial potential. G. Ramakrishna, general manager, BHEL, Tiruchi, and T. V. Krishnan assistant general manager, BHEL, Tiruchi, spoke on the potential of industrial fabrication units.
P. Gopalakrishnan and S. Susindran, chairman and vice-chairman, CII Karur, respectively, addressed the participants.
