Bhagwant Mann said this would propel progress and prosperity in the state, thereby creating new job opportunities for the youth.
The Chief Minister also announced that every year, the state government would organise sectoral summits in every quarter of fiscal year for giving further boost to the industry. He said that this was the need of hour to put the state on the path of high growth trajectory.

The Punjab Chief Minister reiterated the commitment of his government to make Punjab a vibrant, progressive and prosperous state. He said with active support and cooperation of the industry, this task would be accomplished soon.
