Vijayawada: Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has directed the ministers and officers to speed up the processing of the MoUs signed at the Global Investors Summit-2023 in Vizag.
Jagan Mohan Reddy congratulated the ministers and officials of the industries department on the successful conduct of the GIS in Visakhapatnam on March 3 and 4. He stressed that these MoUs promised to provide employment to six lakh people in the state.
Finance minister Buggana Rajendranath, along with industries minister and officials of the industries department called on the CM at his camp office here on Tuesday. The Chief Minister recalled that the meet has attracted investments of Rs 13.41 lakh crore, involving 378 proposals and promising employment to six lakh people. The government has already taken steps for execution of the MoUs by formulating a committee chaired by the Chief Secretary, he said.
Jagan Mohan Reddy said the committee should meet twice a week and take matters forward. The monitoring committee would clear the applications for investments in the state without giving scope for red tape. Officials must create an industry and investment friendly atmosphere.
