$1 trillion economic target: UP government appoints Deloitte advisers and signs memorandum of understanding



The Uttar Pradesh government on Friday signed a memorandum of understanding with Deloitte India, appointing it as advisor to achieve the goal of bringing the state’s economy to $1 trillion.

The memorandum of understanding between the consulting agency and the government was signed here in the presence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, according to an official statement released here.

The government of Uttar Pradesh has given Deloitte India major responsibility for the prosperity of the country’s most populous state, it said.

The Uttar Pradesh government decided on July 19 to appoint Deloitte India as an advisor. The decision was taken on the recommendation of a high-level committee at a meeting of the Council of Ministers chaired by Adityanath.

On that occasion, Adityanath said, “Now is the time of Uttar Pradesh and the state will become the main base for the country’s multidimensional development by fully realizing its potential.”

By 2027, Uttar Pradesh will become a benchmark of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas politics with a trillion dollar economy, the CM said.

Adityanath said Deloitte India should come up with a future action plan with careful consideration within the next 90 days after conducting a sector-based study.

The action plan will be reviewed by a high-level committee chaired by the Secretary-General. It will also be reviewed by a group of ministers.
