Kochi: Industries Minister P Rajeev said the Kerala government would announce its first-ever export policy within two months. In a face-to-face interaction with exporters during an event in Kochi, Rajeev said that an 'export promotion council' would be constituted in the state to promote export of goods from the state.
"Nodal officers would be appointed in the Directorate of Industries and Commerce and District Industries Centre to promote export of goods from the state," he said.
Rajeev said that government would adopt a project allowing manufacture of medical devices, a stockyard for international companies in the electronic sector and assembly centres in Kerala. Further, there are also plans to set up centres to test the quality of products close to airports.
He announced that Rs 16 crore financial aid would be provided by the Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) to construct an Effluent Treatment Plant, also known as ETP, to tackle the release of waste generated from factories in Alappuzha.
