Chandigarh, June 10--China has evinced interest in setting up a world class industrial township in Haryana. This was conveyed at a meeting the Chairman of the Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group, Mr Wang Jianlin, had with the Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, in New Delhi, today. The Chinese delegation sought information from the Chief Minister on the various industrial townships set up in Haryana. China’s Wanda Group has come to Haryana to explore investment opportunities as a sequel to the recent visit of the Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi, to China to draw foreign investment. Mr Manohar Lal assured the Chinese delegation full support of the state government in setting up the industrial township. He briefed the delegation on the potential Haryana had for setting up various ventures. Strategically located on the outskirts of Delhi, Haryana offers abundant possibilities for investment and development, he said. The state is surrounded by National Capital Region (NCR) on three sides. Fifty-seven per cent of Haryana now forms part of the NCR. The state government has set a target to complete the KMP Expressway in the next two-and-a-half years which would be quite helpful for the investors, he said. The Wanda Group Chairman, Mr Wang Jianlin, told the Chief Minister that their proposed industrial township would not only be limited to industry but would be a smart city in itself. Culture, entertainment, hospital, school, food park and university besides other services would form part of the proposed township. It would draw national and international tourism. Mr Jianlin said that they believed in completing the project fast. It would spell employment and earn the state lot of revenue, he added.
