Tamil Nadu is a state at the southern tip of India. The bordering states and union territories are Pondicherry, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The island nation of Srilanka lies off the southeast coast.

 

Tamil Nadu has a long eastern coastline dotted with enchanting beaches with Bay of Bengal in the east. Marina in Chennai is one of the longest beaches in the world. Arabian sea and the states of Kerala and Karnataka form the boundary in the west. Western Ghats have sanctuaries such as Mudumalai wildlife and The Nilgiris, the Queen of Hills. The state is bounded in the north by the states of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Pulicat lake is in the extreme north.

 

Tamil Nadu is one of the most industrialised states in India with a high Human Development Index (HDI). Chennai (formerly known as Madras), the capital city of Tamil Nadu, is the gateway of south India with an international airport, seaports and good rail and road network connectivity. Coimbatore, Madurai and Tiruchirappalli, Salem and Tirunelveli are some of the other major towns in the state. The state has large number of good educational institutions and is one of the leaders in the field of Science and Technology and particularly in Information Technology.

 

Tamil Nadu is one of the well developed states in terms of industrial development and in the post liberalization era, the state has emerged as one of the front-runners by attracting a large number of domestic and foreign investments. It is one of the major recipients of outside investments, particularly of Foreign direct Investment (FDI). Several multi-nationals such a Ford Motors of USA, Hyundai of Korea, St. Gobain of France, Nokia of Finland, etc. have established their units in Tamil Nadu.

 

The Industrial Policy of the state is now focused on stimulating industrial development and attracting FDI. It is aimed at consolidation of the existing industrial base, facilitating new manufacturing capacity and is designed to meet challenges of globalisation and demand for new areas of development.

 

The State has launched an initiative to engender private public partnerships (PPP) by creating a positive business and regulatory environment, enabling flow of substantial domestic and foreign capital for infrastructure building, especially in Special Economic Zones, industrial townships, satellite towns, etc.
