Together with the private sector, the government has been supporting manufacturers with various land and infrastructure interventions for setting up plug-and-play industrial parks and clusters on several thousands of acres of industrial land in the Beyond Bengaluru region. Modernising supply chains by connecting developed and proposed clusters to ports, rail and air would also give the sector a significant boost, the Minister was quoted as saying in a statement.

In the last five years, per capita income in the state has increased 62 per cent and with the huge potential for growth and untapped markets, it will continue to provide opportunities for all, he said.

The state of Karnataka is also partnering with technology companies to leverage industry 4.0 technologies and the state will drive automation and develop AI-powered subscription products or services, he added.
