Haryana can emerge as the country’s leading knowledge state by promoting innovation centres of excellence and industrial development in priority sectors such as electronics, agriculture, food processing and healthcare, according to a study by the Assocham and global consulting firm Frost and Sullivan.

“Haryana’s proximity to premier electronics research and technical institutions makes it favourable for electronics research and development. The state needs to accord priority to initiatives in development and application of frontier technologies such as nanotechnology, development of new materials, genetics, biotechnology, chip manufacturing, communications technology, mobile computing, robotics, energy saving and development of new sources of energy and others to invite investments in the R&D sector,” it stated.  Clusters for electronic components, LED lighting and medical electronics are some of the high opportunity areas for Haryana, the study suggested.

There is a need for Haryana to improve its performance vis-à-vis various social indicators as the growth in industries needs to be supported by developments required in areas of education, health, hygiene and others, it added. “Growth of Haryana as a preferred investment destination for both domestic and global investors would remain restrained without a strong social infrastructure and inclusion,” the report said. The study was released by D S Rawat, national secretary general of Assocham, with V G Ramakrishnan, MD, Frost and Sullivan (South Asia), here on Tuesday.
