The Chamber will also interact regularly with the authorities concerned on the need to improve rail and air connectivity to Coimbatore, and improve the railway and airport infrastructure. The Coimbatore north junction should be developed into a hub station, it said.

On the taxation front, there is a need to reduce the Goods and Services Tax on engineering job work.
