The Odisha government, on the lines of Gujarat, is mulling to organise Global Investors meet on a grand scale. Gujarat had hosted a two-day ‘Vibrant Gujarat’ meet recently.
The Orissa's planned meet, likely to be held in the middle of 2013, is aimed at luring investors in non-metallurgical sectors. The proposed meet envisages designing the investment promotion strategy and action plan for Odisha. It has been proposed to organise sectoral, domestic and international road shows in perspective countries and states before the meet.
The meet also will have follow up action plans like investment facilitation with various departments and monitoring progress of memorandum of understanding (MoU). Preliminary discussions in this regard were held on January 9 under the chairmanship of the State Chief secretary BK Patnaik.
