LUCKNOW: President Ramnath Kovind on Friday inaugurated the “One District One Product (ODOP)” summit in the state capital and expressed hope that the changing environment in Uttar Pradesh would make the state a trillion-dollar economy sooner than later.

The president inspected the ODOP exhibition of all the 75 districts and by pressing a button gave loan worth Rs 1,006 crore to small-time businessmen.
In his address, the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said soon after the BJP took over the reins of the government in the state, the atmosphere had changed and now investors were making a beeline to invest here. Through ODOP, he said, every year 5 lakh persons would be given employment in the state every year. “We are promoting talent, business and for start-ups have earmarked a fund of Rs 250 crore in our budget,” Adityanath stated.
