"The Global Investors Meet had targeted investment commitments of Rs 1 lakh crore, which has already been exceeded. I am very confident that further commitments would be made over these two days," Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa said yesterday while lauding prime minister Narendra Modi for creating "a more investor-friendly climate". She was speaking at the inauguration of state’s maiden Global Investors Meet.

The two-day meet is being attended by 5,000 delegates, including 1,000 from abroad. Jayalalithaa referred to her various pro-industry initiatives and said that "a total investment in infrastructure of $250 billion is planned". "These are not idle promises or mere ideas. Implementation of 84 of the 217 projects and programmes identified under the 'Vision Tamil Nadu-2023' has already commenced," she said.

What was interesting was the reference to Modi’s push to make India a power house of manufacturing business. She lauded Narendra Modi's initiatives on the economic front, saying the "investor-friendly initiatives will enthuse" the businesses planning to invest in Tamil Nadu. "The Honourable Prime Minister has spearheaded many recent initiatives to create a more investor-friendly climate and encourage more foreign direct investment," she said.

Some of the investments pledged on day 1 of the GIM:

Adani Group will invest Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 crore to set up a 650MW solar plant, power and non-renewable power projects.
