DELHI: The Uttar Pradesh government is getting ready to organize promotional activities in various states to promote its iconic cities, Noida and Greater Noida, among investors. This was announced by the Uttar Pradesh infrastructure & industrial development commissioner (IIDC), on a visit to Noida.
The IIDC was in the city on July 17 to review the development works in the twin cities.
Apart from reviewing the progress of the projects launched by the UP chief minister in April, Ranjan also said that the cities will be branded and promoted by the state government as favourable industrial destinations. The IIDC also held a meeting with the Gautam Budh Nagar SSP, Preetinder Singh, to beef up security in the region.
“Noida and Greater Noida have all the elements to compete with an international city. This ranges from roads, transport and world-class infrastructure, which are usually demanded by entrepreneurs for setting up commercial units. However, what is lacking is proper branding and officials have been directed to develop a blueprint for the purpose. Officials will hold conferences and other activities in association with different business and industrial organizations in various states to invite entrepreneurs to set shop here,” Ranjan told TOI.
“There is need to develop a sense of satisfaction and security among investors. Next month, there is an event scheduled with the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) to invite entrepreneurs to set up units in the twin cities,” the IIDC added.
Noida and Greater Noida CCEO Rama Raman said that to improve connectivity in the NCR, the UP government is stressing on completion of the FNG project.
