New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Friday launch the Centre's Support and Outreach Initiative for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) at the Vigyan Bhawan here.

Besides the national capital, similar launch programmes will be held at as many as 100 locations across the country, where Union Ministers and Ministers from the respective state governments will be present.

All these locations will also connect with New Delhi for the main event, which will include a special address by the Prime Minister. He is expected to touch upon several matters of vital interest to the MSME sector.

The Union Government has accorded high priority to the MSME sector in recent years. This outreach and support programme, which will run for the next 100 days, covering the entire country, is expected to provide even greater synergy to the efforts being made for this sector.

The progress of this programme, to be implemented in mission mode, will be monitored on a continuous basis by senior officials of the Union and State Governments.

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and the Union Minister of State for MSME, Giriraj Singh, are among those who will be present on the occasion.
