Amarnath said that all arrangements have been made for the prestigious Global Investors Summit 2023 and 14,000 registrations have been made so far. “All arrangements have been made for the delegates coming from various countries. Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy has already arrived here and other ministers are also coming. The Chief Minister will formally inaugurate the GIS on March 3 at 10:15 AM,” the minister stated.

“A host of ambassadors of various countries, renowned industrialists, and other prominent persons will attend the sessions,” the Industry minister said, adding that MoUs would be signed with various companies during the GIS, he added.

The Chief Minister will participate in ‘back to back’ meetings with some of the industrialists, the minister stated. The main objective of the summit is to boost the state economy and generate huge employment potential for the youth of the state.

“We would like to announce industrial policy on March 3 itself but the election code of conduct is preventing us from doing so” he observed.
