IT and Industries Minister P K Kunhalikutty urged aspiring entrepreneurs to transform Kerala into a vibrant and 'job creating' state and said it needs revenue from entrepreneurship, as reported by PTI.
'We do not need revenue from liquor. The state needs to make revenue from entrepreneurship,' he said in his keynote address at the Young Entrepreneurs Summit (YES) at Angamaly.
Kunhalikutty said the state government is throwing its full weight behind the young and aspiring entrepreneurs to build a vibrant and 'job creating' Kerala to turn the state from the land of job seekers to a land of job creators.
The summit has been organised by the state industries department government in association with the Kerala State Industries Development Corporation.
Kunhalikutty said the decision to bank on youth to build a resurgent Kerala was the culmination of the search for viable model to industrialise Kerala.
'Finally, after long deliberations and brainstorming and after careful evaluation of different trends, we concluded that we can bank on the young minds with innovative ideas to write a different story and the YES is the manifestation of that.' He added.
Government's aim is to make Kerala the preferred destination for start-up businessmen and women in the near future.
