Uttar Pradesh officials meet potential investors in Mumbai


Lucknow : Two years after pushing Mukesh Ambani’s giant Reliance Fresh out of the state, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati has begun trying to attract investments.

As part of this process, a team of about 15 senior state officials led by Cabinet Secretary Shashank Shekhar Singh met possible investors in Mumbai Tuesday.

Mayawati, who has kept herself away from the meet, will have a one-to-one only with those who eventually decide to invest in the state, officials here said.

Representatives of about two dozen industrial houses attended the meet, where state government officials showcased what they had to offer as incentives.

Prominent among those participating in the meet were executives from the energy sector, which is seen as having the maximum investment potential.

Companies who met the government representatives included Torrent, Adani, Essar, GVK, Lanco, Indiabulls and Patel Engineering, apart from three international energy firms: Isolux of Spain, American Electric Supply and Korean Power Distribution Co.
