CHENNAI: At the end of an investors roundtable in Dubai in the UAE on Monday, six industrial groups signed MoUs with the Tamil Nadu government to invest Rs 3,750 crore in the state, which is expected to generate 10,800 new jobs.
The MoUs were signed in the presence of the Chief Minister, Mr Edappadi K. Palaniswami in the final leg of his three-nation tour including the UK and USA where he sought to woo investors to attract more FDI to Tamil Nadu.
