’Invest Karnataka' is going to grab the attention of the whole world. Global investment is coming here as Karnataka has a rich atmosphere. This will put a strong foundation for the development of Karnataka in the next five years," says CM Bommai.

Further CM Bommai also mentioned the State High-Level Committee that has already given clearance for an investment of over ₹ 2.8 lakh crore. Over ₹ 5 lakh crore investment is expected in total.

As most of the investors have shown interest in investment beyond Bengaluru Bommai stated "New industries are coming up in Ramanagar, Hubballi-Dharwad, Ballari, Kalaburagi, and Mysuru. The State of Karnataka is making a big leap in the industrial sector and it will be evident."

Industries are now expanding outside regional boundaries. The FMCG Cluster, which will be built near Dharwad, was inaugurated last week in Hubballi and is anticipated to get an investment of 10,000 crores. More than a lakh people will have jobs due to this. Textile parks will be built in the Kalaburagi, Vijayapura, and Raichur districts, as well as a defense production facility in Tumkur, a pharmaceutical park in Yadgir, an electronic park in Mysuru, and a park for electronics.

Their goal is to add $1 trillion to the Indian economy, which the prime minister estimates are worth $5 trillion. Karnataka has the same ecosystem that exists in China. The manufacturing sector is one where the state has made progress.

In addition, it is a leader in the iron, steel, energy, mechanical and electrical industries. A solid foundation has also been built for electronic and artificial intelligence, aside from this. We have led the way in IT and BT (Business Tech) over the past 20 years, and Bengaluru is known as Silicon Valley. The majority of jobs in this industry are created in IT and telecommunications, with Karnataka contributing 40% of its exports in these areas.

In terms of agriculture output, IT/BT, start-ups, and other areas, the state is ahead. Ease of Doing Business, an industrial policy, has aided in luring investment to this area. In the previous four quarters, the State attracted 38% of foreign direct investment.
