‘Efforts of industrial development and skill development should reach the tier II and III cities more effectively. I congratulate and appreciate the effort of the Bangalore Chambers of Industry and Commerce (BCIC) and Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara group for the initiative to establish the Nodal Centre at Mysore & Dharwad. I am sure such initiatives by BCIC to think beyond Bengaluru will help industries and skill enhancement among youths in other parts of the state’ said Hon’ble Minister for Large & Medium Scale Industries, Government of Karnataka Shri Jagadish Shettar, during the inauguration of Nodal Centre; and Centre for Management Excellence by BCIC SDMIMD on July 15, 2021, in Bangalore.
