"There are six (types) of industries which are important to support the vision and mission of national industrial development," he said at the forum group discussion on the master plan of national industrial development here on Saturday.
The six groups of industries are food industry, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and footwear industry, textile, footwear and multifarious industry. Transportation means industry, electronic and telematic industry, and power generation industry make up the six, he said.
"The types of key industries are related to domestic needs in the long run and we have the potential to develop them," he said.
There are three main characteristics to create a strong industrialized nation; first, strong, in-depth, sound and just national industrial structure; second, highly competitive industry; and third, a technology-and innovation-based industry, he said.
"Food, textile and footwear industry, pharmaceutical and health instrument industry and power generation industry are badly needed to meet domestic needs," he said.
The same is also true with electronic and telematic industry and transportation means industry, which support connectivity among regions in the country, he said.
"The master plan of national industrial development gives businessmen certainty about the types of industries developed, support and policy needed, and other support from other ministries," he said.
