The Indo-American Chamber of Commerce (IACC) has decided to capture the pain points and suggestions to improve ‘ease of doing business’ in Goa. The feedback from the industry will be collated and submitted to the new government after the February 14 elections, so that the government can prepare a roadmap to help local businesses. The industry body will also submit a list of reforms that need to be implemented to promote industrial activity and private investment.
IACC Chairman, CA Santosh Kenkre said that the new government will get first hand inputs on the problems faced by the industry and provide inputs to improve the ease of doing business. Amongst the various factors being assessed, IACC has asked local businessmen about the reforms that they envision, the timelines that they expect for government services, redundant processes and compliances that need to be done away with and services expected from government departments.
IACC Ease of Doing Business Committee Head, Pravin Kakode stated that all the suggestions from the industry will be summarised as a report and submitted to the new government which will be sworn in after the assembly elections in Goa.
Till date, the IACC has received inputs from 40 industry players and is looking to collect more information through the survey
