New Delhi [India], November 3 (ANI): Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh on Friday asserted that the 'World Food India 2017' has opened possibilities of employment in Chhattisgarh.

"This event has opened possibilities of employment in Chhattisgarh. I will also be meeting companies interested in investing in the state. Chhattisgarh has a big share in the agriculture sector, and we are growing towards it," Raman Singh told ANI.

Applauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Singh said that the prime minister's speech on the possibilities of food processing was unique.

"This event also shows how all the states can use these possibilities to improve production, and different food processing units," Raman Singh asserted.

Singh added that food processing is also one sector, which is so wide that its tapping still needs to be done, adding that every state in India has variety of food and they can work upon developing it.

The chief minister was attending the World Food India 2017, which is a three day-long event, organised by the Ministry of Food Processing Industries, and is set to host a congregation of global investors and business leaders of major food companies from November 3 to 5 in New Delhi. (ANI)
