Tamil Nadu Global Investors Meet


The Global Investors Meet is expected to bring in Rs. 1 lakh crore in investments to Tamil Nadu, but apprehensions remain about the State’s industry-friendliness.

With a Pegasus on its logo indicating growth, curtains will go up on Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s most ambitious venture, Tamil Nadu Global Investors Meet (GIM) 2015, which the state claims would attract investments to the tune of Rs. 1 lakh crore (US$ 16 billion).

A total of Rs. 100 crore has been earmarked for this event. Around 100 MoUs are expected to be signed, of which a few are expected to be operational by the end of this year.
