Bhubaneswar: In the run up to the second edition of Make in Odisha Conclave-2018, Odisha’s industrialisation journey received a major boost with Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik performing ground breaking ceremony for 15 industrial units which will collectively invest Rs 1807.92 crore and create employment opportunities for 8,883 people.
“In less than one year, we have done the groundbreaking or inauguration of 64 projects which have created employment opportunities for more than 30,000 youth. This has only reaffirmed our position as the number one State in implementation of live manufacturing investments,” said the Chief Minister in a programme at the State Secretariat.
The 15 industries for which groundbreaking have been conducted today will provide employment to more than 8,800 people in the State, said Patnaik.
The State provides unmatched facilitation mechanism to investors where the Chief Minister closely monitors the investment proposals leading to grounding of projects on time with all supporting infrastructure facilities. This assumes significance as Odisha is among the few states in India which is attracting big-ticket investment proposals in manufacturing consistently.
