UP CM: Focus on 10 sectors toachieve $1 trillion economy

LUCKNOW: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed officials to prepare a detailed action plan focusing on 10 sectors in coordination with all the important departments related to the economic development of the state to achieve the goal of $ 1 trillion (Rs 82 lakh crore) economy in the next four years, said a government spokesperson.

The 10 sectors are: Law and order, agricultural production, social security, infrastructure and industrial development, urban development, rural development, medical and health, education, tourism and culture and revenue collection, he said.

Upbeat with investment proposals worth Rs 35 lakh crore received through the recently held Global Investors Summit and a historic budget of Rs 6.90 lakh crore for the financial year 2023-2024, the state government has embarked on its mission to establish the state as the country’s largest economy by 2027. Yogi Adityanath has given instructions to officials to carry forward the programmes while preparing an action plan in mission mode for the next four years. The responsibility of each of these sectors has been given to an experienced officer of the level of additional chief secretary, he said.

The CM has instructed officers to prepare both short and long-term action plans for each sector and ensure continuous monitoring for its successful implementation. “It is worth mentioning here that the Yogi government recently completed six years in office and celebrated its remarkable successes on the fronts of infrastructure, law and order, connectivity and employment,” said the spokesperson.

The state government also has a big base for realising the huge goal of making the state an economy of more than 82 lakh crores. It was clearly evident during the last three years of Covid-19 pandemic when the whole world witnessed an economic downturn, but Uttar Pradesh’s GSDP increased by 16.8 percent in 2021-22 due to the financial discipline and concerted efforts of the government, he said.

Besides, Uttar Pradesh contributes about 8% to the national GDP, endowed with the most fertile land in the country, abundant water resources, young population, as well as the country’s largest consumer and labour markets.
