Deputy chief minister Dr C N Ashwath Narayan delivered the keynote address and emphasized the role of the state at the forefront of economic development and innovation in all sectors.

He spoke about a number of legislative and structural reforms taken up by the state while bringing about a change in the overall policy outlook. Many of the reforms have been brought into action already and more will be done as the days pass. 


Dr Ashwath Narayan, who is also the minister for Higher Education, said the recent steps to simplify the procedure for establishment of industries in the state, by the promulgation of the Karnataka Industrial (Facilitation) (Amendment) Ordinance 2020, providing an initial exemption from obtaining the pre-operative clearance for a period of 3 years or till the date of commercial operation for newly established industries were the innovative measures taken by the state government.

He said Karnataka is at the forefront of attracting FDI investments in the country and that the government will set the benchmark as we progress post-Covid-19.

In the last few months since the lockdown, Karnataka has attracted investment worth Rs 28,000 crore and created 45,994 jobs in the state.
