Union Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Narayan Rane on Monday advised the Tripura government on developing more tourism opportunities for MSMEs while strengthening the existing industries.

While speaking at the regional conference on sustainable development of MSMEs in the North East Region (NER) in Agartala, he emphasised the significant role of MSMEs in the NER and their contribution to making India self-reliant. 

He said that Tripura is a land of agrarian products and has great potential for MSMEs in the food processing industries. 

MoS Bhanu Pratap Singh Verma also urged the entrepreneurs to take maximum advantage of the schemes. 

He said the state government of Tripura has put in sincere and dedicated effort under the leadership of the Chief Minister to make this event a grand success. 

He said he is sure that the coordinated efforts by both ministries will create a better ecosystem for the development of the MSME sector in the North Eastern Region (NER).

In India, the MSME sector plays a significant role in terms of job creation and improving livelihood. Currently, it consists of over 6 crore units employing more than 11 crore people, contributing significantly to economic growth with around 30 per cent of contribution to GDP.
