Bhubaneswar:Jan 16; The seven-day-long Odisha MSME Trade Fair 2016 concluded here on Thursday. Attending as chief guest at the valedictory ceremony, Governor SC Jamir said MSMEs play a major role in industrial growth and augmenting employment opportunities, revenue exports and economic growth.
MSMEs are the best vehicle for inclusive growth to create local demand and consumption, he said.
"To ensure competitiveness of the MSMEs, availability of infrastructure, technology and skilled manpower are essential and emphasis should be given on promoting the MSME products online," Jamir added.
He stressed that around 25 per cent of the total procurement of any Government department or PSU is to be procured from MSMEs.
