Dehradun, Oct 28 (PTI) A new policy for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) is being worked out in Uttarakhand to help around one thousand unemployed youth to become efficient entrepreneurs and provide them all facilities and incentives to start their ventures, the state government has said.

This announcement was made by Chief Minister Harish Rawat at a programme held yesterday to honour entrepreneurs who have done outstanding work in the MSME sector.

Stating that the peaceful environment of Uttarakhand offers tremendous scope for investment, he said the policy for the MSME is being redrafted to make it more attractive for local entrepreneurs so that they get more opportunities.

Besides, the Hill Industries Policy made in 2008 is also being amended to make it more luring to big industrial houses and give further push to investments in the state, Rawat said.

Claiming that the state is all set to make a big leap in terms of investments in coming years, he said apart from the target of preparing 1000 youth as skilled?entrepreneurs, a climate conducive to investments in eco tourism, agriculture, floriculture and food processing sectors is also being prepared.

Asking investors to come forward to invest in Uttarakhand without any hesitation, Rawat said they will be given all facilities and incentives to make the process smooth.
