Odisha will Blossom into Industrially Rich State: Naveen
Bhubaneswar: Odisha will blossom into an industrially rich state where the Odisha’s own brands will be counted as national and international brands, said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday.
The Chief Minister said that his government has a vision of making Odisha an industrially rich state, a prosperous state, an empowered state by the time we celebrate our centenary year.
Speaking at the 6th edition of ‘Brands of Odisha, Pride of India’ organised by the Sambad group, Naveen said, “We, most of the times, recollect the glory of our maritime trade in ancient days. We cannot always count on our past glory. We have to work unitedly to revive and regenerate that glory”.
The CM said, “As you know, Odisha in recent times has become a magnetic attraction for investors. The Make-in-Odisha-3.0 has surpassed all our expectations attracting investment intents of over Rs 10 lakh crore and job opportunities for 10 lakh youth”.
“I believe our time has come. We are catching the momentum. We are reshaping our old policies and bringing a new set of policies to suit the new requirements. We are also investing in our women and taking initiative to convert our Self Help Groups to Small & Medium Enterprises”, he added.
