The much-awaited three-day Global Investors Summit (GIS 2023), which aims to give the Uttar Pradesh government’s pursuit of general development a boost, will begin on Friday in Lucknow.
Prior to the Global Investors Summit (GIS 2023), the Uttar Pradesh State Industrial Development Authority (UPSIDA) received investments totaling Rs 3 trillion from 53 districts, 10 states, and four foreign nations. These investments will also result in the creation of 9 lakh jobs for young people in Uttar Pradesh.
The Yogi Adityanath-led administration, according to the authorities, “is optimistic with UPSIDA as investment set by Yogi government is three times higher than the aim of Rs 1 trillion.”
One of the investment ideas received is a 90,000 crore rupee foreign capital investment from nations like the US, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the UAE.
Authorities received investments of Rs. 1.53 trillion from various Indian states, according to officials. The investments that are being suggested, meantime, include a variety of industries, including those related to health, hospitality, logistics parks, warehouses, and industrial units.
“An investment of Rs 82,000 crore will be made for developing logistics parks and warehouses alone,” the authorities continued.
