Uttar Pradesh CM To Meet NRIs in Mauritius This Week

Yogi Adityanath’s Mauritius visit comes after his meeting with top U.S. firms to seek investments in the state.


After having met representatives of two dozen U.S. companies for investment opportunities in the state, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will now head to Mauritius on Nov. 1 to invite NRIs to invest in the state.

The chief minister’s three-day visit to Mauritius will involve participation in the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in the country — a mega event designed to woo investors, PTI reported.

Yogi Adityanath’s visit will be a platform for him to meet NRIs and explore possibilities of investment in Uttar Pradesh. He will also talk to members of the diaspora about the steps taken by the state government to make things easy for investors.

As the chief minister assured the 50-member delegation representing 26 American firms during the U.S.-India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF) on Oct. 23, the Uttar Pradesh government office has now put up a single window system, which will grant prompt clearances for investors. Adityanath assured the visiting team that the state economy will play a big role in India-U.S. ties and that his government is committed towards providing an investor-friendly environment. The state also has come up with the Industrial Investment and Employment Promotion Policy initiative to attract investments in the industrial sector.

The delegation that attended the USISPF event included major U.S. firms such as Boeing, Facebook, Adobe, Coca-Cola, Mastercard, and Uber. Representatives from these companies also met the state Health Minister Siddharth Nath Singh, who told them that their investment will create employment opportunities in the state.

The state government has been organizing the UP Pravasi Divas for two years to seek NRI help in development initiatives. It is also said to be planning a Global Investors Summit along the lines of the BJP- ruled states of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.

Yogi Adityanath’s three-day Mauritius visit comes on the heels of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu’s three-country tour to attract investments in his state, and the U.S. visits of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, as well as Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
