Chouhan back from US tour; says MoUs worth Rs 2,400 cr signed

Bhopal: The US-based companies are expected
to invest more than Rs 2,400 crore in Madhya Pradesh,
especially in the infotech sector thus generating a large
number of jobs, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said.
"Of the Rs 2,400 crore, Rs 1,000 crore is expected to be
invested in the IT sector by US companies, according to the
Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) signed with them. This (IT
investment) is going to provide employment to more than 10,000
people," he said.
Chouhan was talking to reporters here last night on his
return from a five-day visit to US.
"My US visit was more productive than I had expected. The
IT sector will generate a large number of jobs with modest
investment," he said.
Chouhan said the delegation accompanying him held talks
with representatives of 25 companies who expressed willingness
to invest in MP and other states in the country.
