The Tamil Nadu Government will announce a ‘Semiconductor and Advanced Electronics Policy’ at Global Investors Meet (GIM), scheduled for January 7 and 8.

A senior government official has informed a new portal that the state will focus more on semiconductor and electronics investment space.

The Industries Minister T.R.B. Rajaa said, “A critical part of this strategy is preparing our labour force for industry demands. We produce the highest number of engineers and have India’s largest R&D output. Schemes like Naan Mudhalvan are pivotal in training our youth for this sector.”

The Minister further said: “Tamil Nadu, India’s leading electronics hub, is the country’s top electronics exporter, having achieved $5.37 billion in electronics exports last year. This year, we are on track to reach $8 billion. Our next phase involves advancing to high-end design and manufacturing high-value electronics.”

Professor V. Kamakoti, Director, Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT-M), said, “IIT-Madras, Anna University and many colleges and universities across Tamil Nadu started the VLSI programme a long time back. There was a special manpower development programme in VLSI, which the Department of Electronics launched in 2000-2001. This has come up in a very big way now. There is no dearth of talent.”
