Confederation of Indian Industries Tiruchi Zone is keen on tapping the region's economic potential by teaming up with national-level institutions.

“We intend to create a common platform for getting inputs from the Indian Institute of Management - Tiruchi, National Institute of Technology - Tiruchi, National Research Centre for Banana, Indian Institute of Food Processing Technology - Thanjavur, and Central University of Tamil Nadu - Tiruvarur, for empowering the region,” S. Anathakrishnan, Chairman, CII Tiruchi Zone said. The CII Tiruchi Zone had already announced that the District Development Plan it is in the process of bringing out will accord a thrust for food processing alongside other sectors such as textiles and fabrication.

The thrust so far has been on power sector. Possibilities for growth of other sectors will be explored through involvement of the national-level institutions, Mr. Ananthakrishnan said.

The district development plan being prepared by a consultant has been mandated with the task of analysing advantages of food-based enterprises block-wise.

Tiruchi district is already known for its modern rice mill, food oil production and flour milling.

The CII, sources said, will aim for sourcing funds under the schemes of Union Food Ministry for installing new food processing projects that are capital intensive.
