In a wide-ranging discussion with business leaders gathered under the aegis of the TV9 Progressive Punjab Forum, state Chief Minister Bhagwat Mann said his government was moving quickly to cut red tape and ease the process of starting a business.
“Our goal is to provide the industry with a single point of contact for clearance. We want to eliminate red tape. No-objection certificates can be secured easily,” Mann told the Progressive Punjab Forum.
Mann made several policy announcements at the Forum, which was attended by a large number of business leaders.
Mann praised India Inc leaders for their contributions to the country’s growth story.
“Businesspeople are true patriots because they create jobs, pay taxes, and profit. “Rather than being feared by the business community, a government should offer solutions,” he asserted.
Interactivity defined the deliberations as business leaders freely expressing themselves.
Mann further added, “I have come to Mumbai after many years and I had a close connection with Mumbai when I was working in television shows. We intend to establish a film city in Punjab. As a result, I’d like to invite filmmakers and producers from Mumbai to establish studios in Punjab to connect the Punjabi film industry with Bollywood. This will also assist the government in generating revenue”.
The Forum was attended by business representatives from a variety of industries and even filmmakers. The Chief Minister took questions from the Network anchors, and this was followed by two power panel discussions in which ideas for investment and growth were discussed in depth.
Speaking on the occasion, Raktim Das, Chief Growth Officer (Broadcasting & Digital), TV9 Network said, “TV9 Network is committed to hosting state leaders across India to foster a vibrant business and economy landscape leading to further the India economic growth story. The Progressive Punjab Forum is a step in that direction, and we are encouraged by the Chief Minister’s constructive engagement with invited business leaders.”
