According to MNM, if it comes to power in Tamil Nadu it would set up a Ministry of Possibilities to cater to Science and Technology, Start-ups and Innovation, to give a fillip to industrial revolution 4.0.

In order to reverse migration from rural areas to urban areas, the MNM government would incentivise big industries to set up their back offices in less developed regions leading to creation of job opportunities there.

The other agendas include: encouraging micro, medium and small enterprises, organising the unorganised labour, setting up of Skill Development Super Parks in each district and introduction of a new timeline-based business facilitation model that will ensure strict compliance, from proposal to approval.

The party had earlier announced its seven-point economic and environment agenda.
