Additionally, Chandrasekaran stated that Uttar Pradesh is “extremely well positioned” to grow into a “trillion-dollar economy” when India reaches $5 trillion in GDP and again into a $2 trillion economy by the time India reaches $10 trillion in GDP.
He emphasised industries with enormous potential to support the state’s expansion, including industry, agriculture, and tourism.
