Naveen Calls Upon Youths To Help Make Odisha Products Global Brands
Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday called upon youths of Odisha to get involved in wealth generation for the nation by involving themselves in business and industry.
Speaking at this year’s edition of “Brands of Odisha: Pride of India”, Naveen said, “I wish more and more people, especially the young people, from our state come forward to take the opportunities in various sectors. The younger generation is bubbling with ideas. They must take the plunge into business and industry, create global brands, and generate wealth for themselves and the nation.”
He also said branding and promotion are essential components of business and industry. The ultimate aim is to bring prosperity, serve people and create a niche for a company, its product or service, he added.
“To create a real good brand, one has to truly endeavour to understand people’s needs, and find easy solutions to them. Money will flow in, brand will be built,” Naveen said.
The chief minister said his government is working committedly to improve the business climate of Odisha. Industry friendly policies, quick clearances and grounding of projects have contributed to make the state one of the most attractive investment destination in India.
“We have received an investment of over Rs 1.25 lakh crore since February 2020 despite the wrath of coronavirus. Our Start-Up policy is also one of the best in the country, he said.
Congratulating the brands of Odisha which are receiving the awards, he said they are the true flag-bearers of entrepreneurship in Odisha. He also thanked Soumya Ranjan Patnaik, Chairman of Sambad Group, for his efforts to promote the brands of the state.
