Hyderabad: Ahead of hosting its first investor summit in October, the government of Uttarakhand has identified 12 focused sectors as it tries to woo investors. However, pharmaceutical firms in the bio-medical field are being eyed at by the Uttarakhand government, according to its chief secretary Utpal Kumar Singh.
“Currently, around 20 per cent of the total pharma proudcts in India are manufactured in our state. We would like the pharma and wellness sector to contribute further,” he said.
Mr Singh, who was in the city along with Uttarakhand minister for forests, labour and Ayush, Harak Singh Rawat, said that the state government was working on multiple investor-friendly policies such as electric vehicles and renewable energy, among others.
“We are in the process of finalising some important policies. We will soon be announcing them,” he said.
The summit, which will be held over October 7 and 8 in Dehradun, will be inaugrated by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi....
