The Editorial Head of OdishaLIVE, Shri Nilambar Rath said, “The concept of ‘Making In Odisha’ is not new to our State. Madhusudan Das had already given this hypothesis long before Mahatma Gandhi introduced the concept of ‘ Swadeshi’ by establishing industrial ventures like the “Odisha Art Ware” and the “Utkal Tannery”. In fact, Gandhiji was so inspired by the tannery during his visit to Odisha that he set up a similar venture at Sabarmati Ashram.”
The event aims to draw invitees including development organizations, corporates, associations, media houses, representatives from academic and research institutions & Government officials. NSIC, UCCI and NOCCI has joined hands as the industrial partners in organizing the program.
