Oommen Chandy, chief minister of Kerala has laid the foundation for the Kinfra Biotech Park at Kalamassery near Kochi.

Speaking after laying the foundation stone, the chief minister said that Kerala had become a favorable destination for investment after the Global Investors' Meet."However, this atmosphere should fully be exploited by attracting more and more investors to the state.
