BHUBANESWAR: The State Government has started taking steps to ensure that the investments promised during the recently concluded Make In Odisha conclave are grounded on time, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said on Wednesday.

Speaking at the Odisha Round Table organised by ‘Business Standard’ on comprehensive strategies to promote the State as a favourable investment destination, Naveen said total investment intent received during the event exceeds `two lakh crore across 10 diversified sectors which have the potential to generate 1.4 lakh additional jobs. 


‘’Launching of nine new industrial infrastructure projects and units over the last three weeks, including three projects of Aditya Birla Group, Shahi Exports and ITC, is a testimony of our focus on results,’’ he said.


The CM said Odisha became the first State in the country to integrate industrial approvals with the e-BiZ platform. The State’s central inspection framework for industries has been recognised as one of the best practices by the Centre and World Bank, he said. 


Stating that most important component of investment promotion strategy is to invest in people, Naveen said the State is going to create a niche in the skill ecosystem of the country so that availability of Skilled-in-Odisha becomes a parameter of quality for investors.


Industries Minister Debi Prasad Mishra said even as big-ticket projects - Posco and Arcelor Mittal - failed to take off, the State is gearing up to script a new investment story propelled by both natural and human resources.
