Inaugurating the 18th edition of Connect 2019, an International Conference and Exhibition on Information and Communication Technology here, Palaniswami said that the state has received Rs 6,500 crore investments resulting in 60,000 new jobs, following an appeal made to captains of industry.

Connect 2019 is jointly organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) along with the Tamil Nadu government and the Software Technology Parks of India (STPI).

“The state government’s electronics manufacturing policy has seen the creation of an ecosystem for IT parks and start-ups, besides the formulation of e-governance and 12,000 e-seva centres with 120 services for the benefit of 4.80 crore people as of now,” Palaniswami said.
