New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday inaugurated the Uttarakhand Global Investors Summit 2023 at the Forest Research Institute, Dehradun.
The two-day summit aims to promote the hill state as a major investment destination.
He also launched the House of Himalayas brand to promote local products and increase the income of self-help groups.
Preparations for the summit have been going on for months. It is being attended by more than a thousand investors and delegates from across the country and abroad.
