Albeit the challenges of being a landlocked region, people from north has demonstrated exemplary entrepreneurship traits and have successfully overcome these inherent challenges. 

Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor would be a game changer for the region.

Emerging opportunities in the defence sector after allowing 49% FDI through automatic route and de-licensing manufacturing of about 60% of defence items.

North India has the potential to emerge as a hub for value added manufacturing in defence sector.

Government is taking lot of initiatives towards ease of doing business
