Youths will be benefited most from Global Investors Summit: Yogi


In an innovative initiative before the Uttar Pradesh Global Investors Summit (GIS) Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has constituted a 48-member team and educationists to acquaint the youth with the employment-oriented schemes and policies of the government.

The team, which includes 12 retired IAS, 6 IPS and Indian Forest Service officers each and 24 educationists, will interact communicate with the youth in different universities and colleges, answer their queries related to employment, as well as make them aware of the utility of the GIS for the them between February 3 to February 5.

The CM on Tuesday interacted with the members of the special team of retired officers and senior educationists in a special programme organised at his official residence.

During the meeting, Yogi said, “Under the guidance of the Prime Minister, in the last five and a half to six years, UP has presented its new identity in front of the country and the world. People’s perception towards the state has changed. All of you have been witnesses to this big change and have been co-travelers.”

He said that UP is a state of immense possibilities and for the overall development of the country and the state we must realise these possibilities. “All of you have long experience in public life and have held important positions. Your cooperation is solicited so that our youths benefit from your experiences,” he said.

The CM said, “When we took over the responsibility of the state in the year 2017, its economy was in a poor state. We studied all aspects and then worked in mission mode to bring about policy reforms and simplify the system. Efforts were made to improve the law and order situation and the very next year when we organised the Investors Summit, we received investment proposals worth Rs 4.68 lakh crore. After this, through three ground breaking ceremonies, we have implemented proposals worth about Rs 4 lakh crore.”

He said, “In 2017, when we called bankers to implement the loan waiver scheme for farmers, we got discouraging results. No one received our call and recently, when there was a meeting with bankers and CEOs, MDs of financial institutions in Mumbai, people spontaneously expressed their eagerness to be helpful in the development of the state.”

Yogi said that the inequality in development has been a major problem in UP. “Eastern UP and Bundelkhand had seen very little development as compared to central region and National Capital Region (NCR) until a few years ago. Neither infrastructure was developed, nor, an effort was made to improve the standard of living of the people. Industries could not be set up in eastern UP and Bundelkhand. As a result, these regions faced a crisis of migration of their youth. We have made concerted efforts for a permanent solution to this sky development problem,” he said.

He said, “We have made special provisions in our policies, focusing on eastern UP and Bundelkhand. We have implemented policies to provide better connectivity, strong law and order and ease of doing business. As a result, today industrial units are being established in these backward areas. We are getting investment proposals worth lakhs of crores of rupees.”

The CM said that GIS is being organised in Lucknow from February 10 to 12 to attract capital investment from the country and abroad with the aim of increasing the size of the state’s economy to 1 trillion dollars. “The three-day summit will provide a platform for industrialists, businessmen, managers, high-level administrative officials, corporate leaders as well as intellectuals, academicians and policy makers from industry and commerce to explore business opportunities and ways for inclusive development of the state and establish partnerships,” he said.

He said that the three-day event will pave the way for realisation of the possibilities of industrialisation in the state, but will also improve the standard of living of the common citizen of the state, strengthen the economy and create lakhs of new employment opportunities. “Our youth will get the biggest benefit of this summit. Our youth will no longer be forced to migrate to other states for jobs and employment,” he said.

Yogi said that the roadshows held in India and abroad before the GIS have seen unprecedented enthusiasm among the investors. “In the roadshows organised in 21 cities of 16 countries, we received investment proposals of more than Rs 7.12 lakh crores. Industry from all over the world has expressed enthusiasm to invest in UP. This summit is going to be historic,” he said.

He said that the GIS will start on February 10 with the blessings of the Prime Minister. “All the districts will be connected with this main function. Local entrepreneurs and investors are being invited to the programmes of the districts. This time, on one day, there will be investment in all the 75 districts of the state simultaneously. This programme is for the youth, so youths from local universities and colleges will also be invited in the districts,” he said.

The CM said that for the success of any plan, it is very important that the person for whom the plan is made should know about it. “Good plans fail due to lack of awareness. Therefore, continuous dialogue and interaction between government, industry and academia is vital. For this purpose, the state government is taking the cooperation of all you experienced officers and educationists,” he said.

He said that before the GIS, communication with all the youths in universities and other educational institutions will be important. “While communicating, inform them about the plans for attracting huge capital investment in UP through various policies issued by the state government. Introduce them to the schemes run by the central and the state government for the welfare of the youth. Address their curiosities so that more and more youth can be benefited from the schemes. Please guide how this summit will be useful for their bright future,” he said.

Yogi said that students should be made aware of the ambitious plans of the government by visiting universities. “Programmes should be organised in colleges in districts where there is no university,” he said.
