Minister for Industries, Investment Promotion, and Commerce, T.R.B.Rajaa said: “TNGIM will be an opportunity for industrial units, startups from tier 2 and tier 3 cities to showcase their potential.

Job generation and high rate of conversion of MoU deals will be some of the key focus areas, he added.

“A key highlight of TNGIM will be the exclusive and customised pavilions that will focus on the industrial ecosystem of Tamil Nadu. These are sector pavilions, startup pavilion, Tamil Nadu ecosystem pavilion, and International pavilions,” said Vishnu Venugopal, Managing Director and CEO of Guidance, the nodal agency for bringing in investments into Tamil Nadu. He added that another special feature of the proceedings would be the exclusive session on Women CXO’s.

Raghuram Rajan and Arvind Subramanian will share the stage and speak about the manufacturing powerhouse that Tamil Nadu is. Author Chris Miller will address the audience in a fireside chat. Popular, home-grown influencers like ‘Village Cooking Channel’ will also form part of the event. Bomman and Bellie from Mudumalai Tiger Reserve, the tribal couple from Oscar winning documentary ‘The Elephant Whisperers’ will also be a part of the summit and interact.

As part of GIM 2024, the state has also rolled out a podcast series called “Future of Growth”. The inaugural episode of the series spotlights sustainable mobility, featuring Satyakam Arya, Managing Director and CEO of Daimler India Commercial Vehicles Pvt Ltd. As a seasoned leader in the automotive sector, Mr. Arya provides invaluable insights into the future of transportation, emphasizing sustainability, innovation, and the pivotal role of technology in shaping mobility.
