Mr. Satish Kamat, President (Operations) extended a warm welcome to the guests. Mr. Shivashankar, Sr. Vice President (Marketing) gave a briefing on the unique features of the integrated business city, its world-class infrastructure and brisk pace of development, existing investor-friendly ecosystem, and the social infrastructure being established.
Expressing satisfaction on the available infrastructure, Mr. Kaoru Shiraishi said, “We are all impressed by the infrastructure within Sri City.” They were ecstatic to learn that Sri City is the second largest Japanese township in the country, and majority of existing Japanese enterprises are expanding their manufacturing base. They appreciated the social infrastructure amenities being built for expats, such as serviced apartments, restaurants, educational institutions, recreational facilities, golf driving ranges, and so on.
The intent of their visit was to witness and gain first-hand knowledge about Sri City, which has emerged as one of the ‘ten great places for manufacturing’ across the country, having the potential to attract investments from abroad. During the briefing session, they all evinced keen interest and quizzed on different aspects of Sri City. The delegation had a glimpse of the industrial park and visited the production plants of a few Japanese companies.
JETRO is a Japanese government-supported organisation that promotes mutually beneficial trade and investment relation between Japan and other nations.
