Nike shoes from Cheyyar, Tamilnadu

TN seems to be going places in attracting Foreign Business. The latest being, Growth Link, a subsidiary of Feng-Tay, the Taiwanese Nike shoe manufacturing major. Growth Link has proposed to set up a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) at Cheyyar in Tiruvannamalai district and also a shoe manufacturing unit in it at an investment of Rs 300 crore.

The SEZ would be coming up in an area of 275 acres and initially provide employment to 5,000 persons. It would increase to about 15,000 in due course.

I personally like the idea of growth / development away from chennai (chennai is already choking!) and Cheyyar is a small to my 'Pugundha ooru' - vandavasi.
