Our focus should be on the quick grounding of these industrial projects,” Patnaik said launching the projects from here.
Towards achieving Transformation at all levels, we have devised the FIVE-T strategy, which will be achieved through Teamwork, Transparency and Technology enablers in a Time-bound manner. The strategy of the State Government is already witnessing encouraging results towards the industrial development of the State.
In exactly one year from today, we will organise the Make in Odisha Conclave 2020. Let’s all work together to make it the greatest investment summit ever organised by any State in the country. I invite the global business community to join us at the summit from November 30 to December 04, 2020.
