Odisha government in collaboration with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), hosted a curtain-raiser here on Wednesday for the Make in Odisha conclave and Investors’ Meet.

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, state Industries Minister Pratap Keshari Deb and senior officials attended the meeting, which was attended by ambassadors from over 30 countries and over 50 delegates, representing various industries from across India.

Addressing the dignitaries, Patnaik said, “Odisha is one of the fastest growing economies in India and has consistently grown above the national average in the last decade-and-a-half. We are fast emerging as a major industrial destination in eastern India because of our natural resource advantage and strategic location.
