Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Himachal Pradesh, which has attracted Rs. 10,700 crores investments over the last few years, is targeting another Rs. 25,000 crores by 2007, according to the Chief Minister, Virbhadra Singh.

He was addressing a press conference after an interaction meeting with industrialists organised by the State unit of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) here on Monday.

Inviting businessmen from Andhra Pradesh, he said their policy was to invite `non-polluting industries,' and attain ecologically sustainable development.

In line with this strategy, he invited investments in IT, biotechnology, electronics, and hydro-power generation. "Tourism will remain the number one industry. But industrialisation is required to create jobs," he said.
