Guwahati to get new Women Entrepreneurs Hub
A Women Entrepreneurs Hub will be set up in Guwahati which will exclusively cater the products made by women, declared Industries and Commerce Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary while inaugurating the three-day exhibition on ‘Traditional Jewellery Designing and Making, Block Printing and Lifestyle Products’ at Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship (IIE), Guwahati.
Lauding the efforts in crafting exquisite products and designs, the Minister asked the women entrepreneurs to focus on innovation and quality to compete in the national and international markets, while retaining the traditional motifs. He therefore asked the department officials to rope in professional experts to impart training on fine quality commodities.
The Minister also added that the upcoming Incubation Centre at Ambari, Guwahati will dedicate two floors of the building for products, goods and artefacts designed and made by women. Stating that only micro industries can provide large employment opportunities at comparatively lower capital investments than large industries, Minister Patowary said that an Industrial Park will be set up at Jagiroad on a plot of 19 bighas land with 40 sheds of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) where women entrepreneurs will be given preferences.
