GUWAHATI, June 17 - Assam is eyeing a JETRO city on the lines of the Japanese Industrial Park at Neemrana in Rajasthan and the State�s Industry and Skill Development Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary is scheduled to meet a delegation of industrialists from the east Asian country to further the proposal.

�Two rounds of preliminary talks have already taken place. We are meeting representatives of around 150 Japanese companies on Wednesday in Delhi again,� Patowary said.

He said the government has already identified a plot of 2,000 bighas at Nagarbera in Kamrup district for the plan.

The Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) is a government-related organisation that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world.

The industrial park in Rajasthan�s Alwar district in a plot of 1,100 acres is an experiment between JETRO and the Rajasthan government. The park is exclusively dedicated to Japan�s corporations and global titans like Toyota, Hitachi, etc. It has created about 10,000 factory jobs.

�Honda has a manufacturing plant in Bangladesh. But the spare parts are brought from outside. We are exploring the possibility of setting up a spare parts manufacturing unit in Assam,� Patowary said, adding that the total investment in the JETRO city could be over Rs 3,000 crore.
