Ravi wants non-resident Keralites to invest in the state
Thiruvananthapuram: Union Minister for
Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi today said non-resident
Keralites should get more opportunities to invest in projects
being implemented by the state government.
"Non-resident Keralites have a significant role to play
in the development of the state. To involve them in state`s
development programmes, they should get more opportunities to
invest in big projects," Ravi said.
He was addressing the `Kerala Development Congress`, a
four-day development seminar, organised by Kerala Pradesh
Ravi said, "Hospitality, health and tourism are the major
investment-friendly sectors for expatriates in Kerala."
The minister said that instead of larger industrial
initiatives, Panchayat oriented enterprises with the
investment of non-resident Keralites should be taken up for
the state`s development.
"Kerala is on growth path. It offers jobs for a large
number of labourers from other Indian states especially those
from Bihar and Bengal and becoming a `mini Dubai` in that
regard," Ravi said.
He also said arrival of labourers from outside was an
indication of development the state has achieved.
