Thursday, 13 September 2018 | PNS | NEW DELHI

With a contribution of around 25 per cent of the country’s steel production, Odisha has transformed into the steel hub of India, said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik while addressing an ‘Odisha Investors’ Meet’ in New Delhi on Wednesday.

Highlighting various developments of the State, Patnaik said Odisha is the aluminium capital of South Asia accounting for over 54 per cent of the country’s production. It is also fast emerging as the manufacturing hub of eastern India.

“During the last 18 years, the port capacity of the State has increased from 20.5 MMT to 190 MMT while power generation has increased more than three folds and stands at 17, 690 MW. Besides, there has been more than 50 per cent increase in road network of the State,” he said.

Patnaik also invited investors to attend the second edition of the ‘Make in Odisha’ conclave which will be held in Bhubaneswar from November 11 to 15.

Referring to the Make in Odisha Conclave, he said its theme ‘I am Odisha’ would celebrate all successes of Odisha and people creating a vibrant ecosystem for business. The event will enable the investors to know more about the investment opportunities in Odisha, Patnaik added.

On the occasion, the CM launched the ‘Invest Odisha’ website which would facilitate investors to get information related to policy, cost-of-doing-business and infrastructure.

Among others, Industries Minister Ananta Das and Chief Secretary AP Padhi were present on the occasion.
