The Chief Minister, currently visiting Dubai accompanied by a high level delegation, told mediapersons yesterday that the proposed project will be completed in a few years.

“We are negotiating with Emaar for developing different projects in various parts of Punjab. If the negotiation bears fruit, there will be some more projects focusing on developing a new industrial culture in the state,” he said, adding that Dubai is a role model for any city in the world for its development and achievement in a short span of time.

“A new tie-up with Dubai will help the state to accomplish development and the state is looking forward to it,” he said.

Further, Singh noted that the state’s focus was shifting from agriculture.

“Because of scarcity of water in the state, agriculture has been affected and we have realised that the state cannot develop just with the income from agriculture,” he said, adding: “The only way to accomplish the goal is to create a platform for industries to grow. We are trying to create such a momentum.”

“As a result, we are trying to attract foreign investors to the state. We have various plans to create investment-friendly atmosphere in the state,” he said, adding that he was scheduled to attend some meetings in Dubai in this regard.
