Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb today said his government would lay massive thrust on creation of newer employment opportunities through fruit processing and bamboo based industries.
In his address at a felicitation programme of youths trained by Tata Trusts, Chief Minister Deb said that the state has a huge potential of developing its largely primary economy by harping on the potential of bamboo, fruit processing and tourism.
He urged youths who were trained by the initiative to ensure development of the state in their own capacities. He lauded Tata Trust for the initiative and said not a village in India exists which does not know Tata.
“Tata has been able to create a niche for themselves by good work and maintaining quality in all their endeavours. Jamshedji Tata transformed soil into gold by his sheer hard work and will”, Deb said.
He added that his government was working closely with Tata for digitizing the state government and offering e-governance benefits to the people.
Referring to the huge natural resource including bamboo, pineapple, jackfruits and other forest produces, the young CM said he would welcome any large industrialist who would purchase pineapple and other produces from the state and sell them worldwide with any margin of profit.
He invited Tata to invest more on Tripura and said that the Queen variety of pineapple grown in Tripura could be the next big addition in the delicacy of Tata group’s range of hotels.
