MANGALORE, Nov. 22

THE proposal to set up a special economic zone (SEZ) covering the entire coastal stretch of Karnataka will be forwarded to the Centre for approval as soon as a detailed plan is worked out, the Karnataka Minister for Large and Medium Industries, Mr R.V. Deshpande, has said.

The State Government had already cleared the SEZ proposal `in principle' and also approved a plan for setting up an export promotion park in Mangalore, Mr Deshpande said here on Friday.

Mr Deshpande also added that the Karnataka Government had already acquired the land required for `internationalisation' of Mangalore Airport.

Those who have lost their land for the runway-extension project in and around Bajpe have also been compensated, he said.

Regarding the growth and development of coastal Karnataka, Mr Deshpande said that software, bio-technology and fisheries could be the core sectors that the three districts along the coast could focus on.

Mr Deshpande was speaking after inaugurating a 45-day science and technology exhibition organised here as part of the centenary year celebrations in memory of the late U Srinivasa Mallya, considered to be the `architect' of the Dakshina Kannada district.
