Jharkhand signs MoU with Cisco

The Jharkhand government on Tuesday signed an MoU with Cisco to impart networking training to students of engineering colleges, polytechnics and degree level institutions in Jharkhand.

Students will be trained through the Cisco Networking Academy Programme to increase the availability of skilled networking resources from within the state.

 Jharkhand Chief Minister M Raghubar Das kick-started the maiden investment promotion campaign and formally launched its investment promotion campaign ‘Momentum Jharkhand’ in the city.

The state is ranked among the best performing states in business reforms, based on an evaluation by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).

Citing the latest initiative of the central government in developing the Amritsar-Kolkata corridor, the chief minister said that it will give momentum to the economic development of eastern India as well as Jharkhand.

“Jharkhand, in a sense, is the backbone of the ‘Make in India’ mission, since it holds 40% of India’s natural mineral wealth and on track to become the country’s power hub by 2019”, Das said, adding that they have a land bank of 1.75 lakh acres at disposal, besides earmarking 200 acres for the IT sector.

“We can allocate land to a potential investor in one week’s time,” he said.

The maiden ‘Jharkhand Global Investor Summit’ will be held on February 15–16, 2017, in Ranchi.
