During the meeting, the Chief Minister also said that they should aim at attracting global investments and turning the State into a hub for green energy and other emerging new products.

He asked officials to prepare a detailed plan of action explaining the vast opportunities and resources available for investments in the State.

Jagan also asked them to study the functioning of various industrial hubs during their visits abroad after officials informed him that they would be conducting road-shows abroad about the summit.
