Japan is also a high-potential market for eco-friendly coir products from Kerala," Shri Prakash said after the meeting.
Shri Prakash described the results of the preliminary discussions as "positive". Further talks on export opportunities for Kerala's coir products are expected to be held with Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. Meanwhile, Potters Wheel Group, a Dubai-based investment advisory and asset management company, has shown interest in promoting the state's specialised products and services under "Brand Kerala - Made in Kerala". The Kerala State Bamboo Corporation has signed an MoU in this regard with the company, which is represented at Emerging Kerala by top officials, including Chairman Rashid Bin Butti Bin Bishr and Vice Chairman SinaFattahi. Shri Prakash said besides buying products from Kerala, the company is interested in investment in other sectors too.
Inaugurating the sectoral session on "Ports, Shipbuilding and Logistics", Union Shipping Minister Shri.
Addressing the session, Kerala Minister for Ports, Excise and Fisheries, Shri. K Babu announced the creation of a Costal Shipping Fund and formation of Kerala Maritime Board which would act as a single window for facilitation for investors and operators in the ports, shipping and logistics sector. "We have designed an appropriate incentive system to motivate modal shift to coastal shipping. Decisions have been taken to provide incentives to the operators engaged in the coastal shipping on per ton km of cargo basis," he said.
The target will be achieved with a three-pronged strategy of modern infrastructure, incentives and institution building," Shri.
Presenting the main projects, Shri.
"The port has the potential to become a major transshipment hub in India," said Shri. A S Suresh Babu, Managing Director and CEO, Vizhinjam International Seaport. It is estimated that India can save more than 100 million U.S dollars a year in foreign exchange once the port becomes operational. "We are also proposing a cruise terminal to support the tourism sector, besides providing a terminal for the Coast Guard," Shri.
In 2007-08 alone, Beypore handled 0.135 million tonnes of cargo and the traffic in 2024 is expected to be 2.00 million tones, Shri.
Sensing a pressing need for high-quality vocational education, the Kerala government is planning to set up an international skill academy that aims to boost the growth of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the state, Labour Minister Shri. Shibu Baby John said . Already quite a few players have shown interest to help realise the proposed endeavour, he said at the Emerging Kerala Global Connect in the city. Training in construction would be a focal area of the academy, given the urgent need to keep pace with the state's increasing urbanisation. Second in priority would be imparting training in multi-skills such as retail and hospitality, he told delegates at a sectoral session on 'MSME & Skills' on the final day of the three-day summit. "IT (Information Technology) will come next. It is conceived to fetch the pass-outs high-end jobs on the one side and those like BPO (business process outsourcing) on the other," the Minister said. The fourth stream of education will be entrepreneurship, he added. Shri. John pointed out that the Government had recast the age-old employment exchanges into employability centres, which would first conduct an aptitude test for candidates. "Those who clear it would be inducted into the private sector," he said. The Minister said the global industry has taken note of the vocational skills of the people of Kerala. "It was known to the world as early as in the 1960s, when Malayali nurses migrated upcountry and skilled labourers moved out to the Persian Gulf. But somewhere down we lost it, one reason being the below par communication skills," he noted. The Government is making determined efforts to counter this stagnation, he added. Shri. Amitabh Kant, CEO and Managing Director of the Delhi-Mumbai Investment Corridor Development Corporation, sought to "explode two myths" about Kerala. One, he said, it was wrong to believe that the people of the state generally lacked entrepreneurship talent, "in which case we would not have seen so many successful Malayali businessmen abroad". Second was the perception about lack of land area hindering Kerala's industrialisation and development. "Kerala is of the size of Singapore and Hong Kong, which are among the world's most advanced places. Vertical growth is integral to the development of the state," he said. Shri. C.N. Balakrishnan, Kerala Minister for Cooperation, Khadi & Village, too, noted that MSME was poised to play a vital role in the state's development. It would give employment to both skilled and unskilled labourers, he said in a speech that was read out in the minister's absentia by Shri. R. Radhakrishnan Nair, CNN-IBN Executive Editor, who moderated the three-hour session. Shri. K.T. Chandy of Ernst and Young, the knowledge partner for Kerala's MSME sector, stressed the need for development of clusters to boost the industry. Shri. K.S. Srinivas, Special Secretary (IP), Government of Kerala, noted that MSMEs would be the ideal catalyst for Kerala's growth, considering that these would require less space in a state that land is scarce. Interactive talks with the audience followed an exchange of ideas between panelists Dr Jebamalai Vinanchiarachi, who is former principal advisor to the UNIDO Director General; Shri.
Dilip Chenoy, National Skill Development Corporation MD & CEO; Dr Dinesh Awasthi, Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India Director; Dr M. Chandrasekhar Reddy, NI-MSME Director-General; and Shri.
