Assam has immense potential in plastic industry

Assam has immense potential in plastic industry with a massive campaign underway to tap the opportunities, state Industries and Commerce Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary said today. “Plastic has become omnipresent in our daily life. In this regard Assam has immense potential for plastic industry and a massive campaign is necessary to tap the opportunities in the state,” he said at a seminar on plastic industries organised by Federation of Industry and Commerce (FINER) here.

With the centre’s vision of Hydrocarbon 2030, the environment is apt for investment, the minister called upon the entrepreneurs to invest in plastic industry in Assam. The government has recently passed the Ease of Doing Business Bill 2016 which is a single window clearance system and will soon launch the portal that will fast-track the business projects in the state, he said.

The Assam government has mulled over the creation of a new department on skill development and this, the minister said, would help in creating a pool of skilled manpower which would benefit the plastic sector. Soon plastic industries would be incorporated with the MSME Act and accordingly all the incentives under the act can be availed by the sector, he added.

Representatives from Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited (BCPL), Central Institute of Plastics Engineering & Technology (CIPET) here, IIT-Guwahati, Union Ministry of Chemicals & Petrochemicals attended the seminar.
