The Northern region has consistently outperformed India’s national average in terms of GDP, with the region accounting for approximately 26 per cent of national GDP. However, sustaining this growth rate will require greater investments, continuous support of the government, expansion of infrastructure, accessibility to educated professionals and access to skilled labour.
The compendium provides a detailed account across the northern Indian states with an overview of demographics, identifies key sectors and investments, describes the state of infrastructure, highlights advantages of ease of doing business, and illustrates key initiatives and projects being performed across these states.
The report would serve as a reference point on highlighting the advantages of investing and doing business across the Northern Region and help towards identifying investment opportunities in the Northern States.
The CII-KPMG report was released at the 3rd Edition of ‘Invest North 2014’ organized by CII on 24-25 July 2014 at New Delhi.
