Works minister mulls better road connectivity
Golden Trans Power, an industry set up in 2018 at Tera Urak Industrial Estate, Bishnupur to repair and produce small medium and large power projects was inaugurated by minister of commerce and industries, Th. Biswajit Singh today.
Golden Trans Power owned by Hero Thokchom is a slowly emerging leading name in the field of small, medium and large power projects and infrastructure developments. It was set up for developing industrial growth in Manipur to cater to the requirements of the state government along with the northeast region and the nation as a whole.
Biswajit, while addressing the function as its chief guest, said he will initiate a survey to chalk out means to construct a road which will connect all the valley districts in the State for easy transportation.
The minister appealed Golden Trans Power to manufacture their products at par with international standards so that it can be exported to neighbouring countries such as Myanmar. In doing so, products from Manipur can dominate the markets of neighbouring countries before any other country, he said.
He said the State should make its path to bring a transformation from its current inaccurate direction. Entrepreneurs in the State should also tie up with other states as a joint venture so that different resources of the State can be utilized effectively.
Mission for Economic Empowerment of Traditional Artisans and Craftsmen (MEETAC), a new initiative of the present government launched in this month, is aimed to provide unified access to the traditional artisans of hills and valleys for design development of their crafts and arts as per global standards, and to increase market demand of their products and to keep the preservation of the State’s culture and heritage in mind, he added.
While reasoning that unemployment is a big challenge in the present society, Biswajit also said if more entrepreneurs come up and employ people in their ventures, it will help in tackling the problem of unemployment in the state to a certain extent.
Entrepreneurs should explore and observe different works taken up by other countries and try to implement it in tune with the State’s policies and programme.
Chairman of Manipur Pollution Control Board, L. Radhakishore Singh while delivering the president speech said the government will make efforts to approve Golden Trans Power which is the only industry in Manipur manufacturing power projects and infrastructure.
