Chhattisgarh became the first state in the eastern region and second in India, after Andhra Pradesh, to take the “giant step” towards creating a conducive and vibrant environment for businesses.
The state yesterday exchanged an MoU on building a ‘Master Plan on Ease of Doing Business in Chhattisgarh: Vision 2020’ with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the Lee Kuan Yew School for Public Policy (LKYSPP) of Singapore.
The MoU was signed in the presence of Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh.
The MoU will enable Chhattisgarh to utilise the Asia Competitiveness Institute (ACI) of Singapore as a platform for investment research, study economic situations and explore investment opportunities in ASEAN and China.
Addressing the seminar on e-Commerce: The Next Frontier organised by CII in Raipur coinciding with its Eastern Regional Council Meeting earlier, the Chief Minister said that his government aims to achieve around nine percent growth over the next five years.
He appreciated the CII for its effort in organizing the seminar on e-commerce and also for bringing its Eastern Regional Council Members to Raipur.
He said that Chhattisgarh is increasingly focusing upon e-commerce and hoped that the state would be the first to implement e-auction in mining and minerals.
