Mizoram Governor Hails Sri City’s Development and Skill Initiatives

Sri City, March 6, 2024: The Hon’ble Governor of Mizoram, Dr. Hari Babu Kambhampati, visited Sri City on Wednesday afternoon for a short visit. Dr. Ravindra Sannareddy, Founder Managing Director of Sri City, warmly welcomed the Governor and the entourage. Welcoming the Governor, Dr. Sannareddy emphasised the significance of the visit, highlighting that it was the first time a Governor had ever come to Sri City. He reflected on his longstanding association with Dr. Hari Babu, hailing his presence as a great honour. The guests were apprised of Sri City’s integrated business model, encompassing industrial performance, employment generation, skill development initiatives, women empowerment, and corporate social responsibility undertakings, with a particular emphasis on sustainability efforts.

In a meeting with industry leaders (CXOs), the Governor outlined the purpose of their visit. He emphasised their focus on finding job and skill development opportunities for qualified and motivated young people from Mizoram, in particular, and the Northeast region in general, in a phased approach, starting with offering opportunities in smaller groups.

The Governor commended Sri City’s excellent infrastructure, investor-friendly environment, and its role in transforming the region. He appreciated Dr. Ravindra Sannareddy’s unwavering efforts and dedication in transforming a ‘once backward’ area into a vibrant economic region. He suggested that, in support of the Indian government’s Aatmanirbhar Bharat mission (self-reliant India), Sri City may consider allocating a designated area for establishing specialised enclaves focused on space and defence industries.

The Governor particularly appreciated Sri City’s focus on employment generation and skill development. He noted the large-scale job creation in various sectors and lauded the collaborative efforts with industries to enhance the skill sets of local youth.

Demonstrating his keen interest in empowering Mizoram’s youth, the Governor along with a team of officials of the Mizoram Government visited the skill development centre at Daikin and interacted with the experts. Discussions with a few recruitment agencies aimed at bolstering employment prospects for Mizoram’s youth underscored the Governor’s commitment to regional empowerment. Concluding his visit, the Governor engaged with students and faculty at the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), fostering dialogue on educational opportunities and innovation.

In the presence of the Governor, the Institute for Climate and Environment (ICE) and Sri City exchanged the MOU signed to inspire each other on the journey of elevating climate consciousness and sustainability by forging meaningful partnerships.

The Governor‘s entourage which included several officials like the Chairman of the Mizoram Youth Commission, the Deputy Director of the Labour department, and representatives from the government IT institute, planning department, and science council, arrived a day early. Their purpose is to meet with relevant authorities and learn about the area’s skill development and employment initiatives.

Reflecting on the visit, Dr. Sannareddy expressed gratitude for the Governor’s valuable insights, highlighting the visit’s potential to inspire further growth and collaboration within the Sri City community.
