He was speaking at the Bihar Business Connect-2023, a two-day global investors summit that concluded on Thursday.

“Our group has decided to invest Rs 8,700 crore in additional sectors in Bihar. This will create direct or indirect employment for approximately 10,000 people in the state,” Adani said.

Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar released the Bihar Logistics Policy 2023 and a coffee table book (of the state industries department) at the summit on Thursday. The policy aims at providing “international-standard” infrastructure facilities for industrial and social growth.

Kumar, however, did not address the gathering at the event.
