But small-scale industry is a sub-sector of industrial development that is of great importance as mentioned above, but it has not received the type of attention it deserves that is why the government and the feral ministry of industries lay down the parameter under which a industrialist may take advantage of the various incentive created by the government for ht growth of the small-scale industries.
