CII Northern Region's theme for the year 2014-15 will be accelerating growth in the northern region. CII will primarily focus on promoting a sustainable growth model for the region, which on one hand is witnessing an unprecedented urbanisation and on the other has a very strong agriculture- based economy, said Irani.

"We would put our efforts towards increasing the ease of doing business in the region, promoting MSME competitiveness, sustainability and technology-enabled agricultural practices," he said adding that skill development, good governance and inclusivity would continue to remain as the focus of the regional work.
