LUCKNOW: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the two-day ‘Uttar Pradesh Investors’ Summit,’ the first mega event to be organised by Yogi Adityanath government on Wednesday. The summit will witness the participation of at least 18 Union Ministers including Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley, Suresh Prabhu, Nitin Gadkari, Nirmala Sitharaman, Ravi Shanker Prasad, Dr Harsh Vardhan, Smriti Irani, etc.

The Union ministers are likely to chair 30 different individual sessions to woo the investors.

While the PM will inaugurate the meet on Wednesday, President Ram Nath Kovind will grace the valedictory as the chief guest on Thursday. UP CM Yogi Adityanath will hold one-to-one interactive sessions with CEOs of various companies on Wednesday. He will also chair a special session on ‘Engaging Diaspora for Progressive UP’ on Thursday. This special session would aim at wooing back the entrepreneurs who had left the state for greener pastures.

However, the state government has claimed to have already signed around 900 Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) to the tune of over Rs 3 lakh crore with different companies in various sectors. According to Industrial Development Minister Satish Mahana, this had been perhaps the highest number of MoUs UP government ever signed with the private companies in the recent past.

Over 8,000 delegates –both national and international – have already got themselves registered for the summit. "The state government has put its best foot forward to promote the summit across the nation. We held half a dozen road shows in different metros and have devised sector-specific policies to suit the investors,’’ Mahana said.

According to Industrial and Infrastructure Development Commissioner (IIDC) Anup Chand Pandey, the state government would be felicitating during the summit the industrial houses and companies who have signed MoU.

Moreover, seven countries, including Japan, Czech, Slovak Republic, Finland, Netherland, Mauritius and Thailand will be partnering in the mega event. Their delegates will throw light on the policies related to various sector in their countries.

In all, 30 sessions would see industrialist and experts delving into a host of sectors and related policies that will set the tone for UP’s industrial growth. All eyes will be on the Defence sector with UP government promising to set up a dedicated defence corridor.
