The Czech Republic has evinced keen interest to invest in aerospace, defence and auto manufacturing sectors in Haryana.
Ambassador of Czech Republic to India, Milan Hovorka called on Haryana Industries and Commerce Minister Vipul Goel here today to discuss possibilities for cooperation in various sectors, including aerospace, defence and auto manufacturing, an official spokesman said.
During the meeting, it was discussed that industries in the Czech Republic could be invited for setting up aerospace and defence facilities in the upcoming integrated aviation hub at Hisar, he said.
As Haryana has three flying clubs, world-class flying training facilities could be developed in collaboration with Czech institutions imparting such training, he said.
Presently, trainee pilots have to travel to Prague for such training.
Discussion was also held regarding the possibility of inviting Czech companies to set up auto and auto-ancillary units in Haryana, he said.
Czech automobile giant Skoda presently has two plants at Pune and Aurangabad.
As a cultural exchange initiative, Haryana may also host the Czech philharmonic orchestra for one performance in Chandigarh during their tour to India in January 2018, the spokesperson said.
Hovorka also invited the state industries minister to visit Czech Republic in October 2017 for the industries fair, scheduled to be held there.
India is a partner state in this trade fair.
