Chief Minister Kamal Nath has said that there should be real industrial investment in Madhya Pradesh and the State Government is working with the idea that the State will benefit from it. He said that instead of entering into an agreement for the sake of it, industries should be set up on the land and work will be carried out in a planned manner to provide employment to the people of the State.
The Chief Minister said that whosoever invests in the State with this intention will be provided with full facilities and support by the Government. Nath was addressing the CII Leadership Conclave organized at Indore today.

The Government is concerned about the economic progress of the state and serious efforts are being made in this direction. We aim to provide employment to the youth on a large scale. For this, whatever investment will come in the state, full facilities and cooperation will be provided by the State Government.
The Chief Minister said that today new technology is changing the lifestyle of people. People working in the field of industry and business have to be prepared according to the new technology. Nath said that 70 percent population of the state is dependent on agriculture. By strengthening the agricultural sector financially, a large population can be made self-sufficient.
