Speaking at the ‘Women Entrepreneurs’ (WE) Summit 2015′ in Kochi, state chief minister Oommen Chandy said the Women Entrepreneurs Collaborating and Networking (WECAN) initiative of Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation (KSIDC) would give a new impetus to women entrepreneurs in the state.

Kerala has always been in the forefront of educating women and initiatives like this would help bridge the gap and bring in a positive trend. The state government would support to protect the local industry by building the necessary basic infrastructure, he said.

The summit was organised by KSIDC under the Women Entrepreneurship (WE) Mission programme. It was attended by over 1,500 women entrepreneurs from across Kerala.
