A new draft of industrial policy being prepared in Rajasthan after the recent change of government has laid emphasis on investments and employment generation, while ensuring the participation of all stakeholders.

A series of dialogues has been initiated to get the opinion of different industrial sectors.

In the first dialogue with representatives of food processing and textile industries held here on Tuesday, key inputs were obtained in the areas such as research and development, export promotion, land conversion and construction of dedicated corridors.

State Industries Commissioner Krishna Kant Pathak said the draft would be finalised after the study of similar policies in other States and presented before the stakeholders.
