Tourism & education could be new areas for investment: Arun Jaitley

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said Jharkhand has a stable government and tourism and education could be the areas for new investments in the state.

Jaitley, who was here as chief guest for the inaugural ceremony of Global Investors' Summit, 2017, said the summit was an important initiative of Jharkhand and Chief Minister Raghubar Das.

Jharkhand is such a region that has natural resources and food resources and there is a big scope to lead in the three areas of the economy --- agriculture, services and manufacturing industry. If food grains are there in manufacturing and industry then there would be value addition, and a scope would come (for investments), he told a press conference said. Agriculture in Jharkhand has always been good.

And the moment there would be economic growth services would come up and investments would come. Jaitley said now Jharkhand has good stable government and the government's effort was to increase investments. The Union Finance Minister said the Centre's support was there and he believes that a great change is in the offing in the state.
