Mangaluru, Aug 26: “‘A day out in Mangaluru’, investors’ meet will be organized in Bengaluru,” announced Mangaluru south MLA, J R Lobo in his address to media persons.

Addressing media persons at a press meet held here at district Congress office on Friday August 26, Lobo said, “Due to lack of job opportunities in the city, youngsters from our city are migrating to cities like Bengaluru, Mumbai in India and some also go abroad. I feel this is not a good development. Youngsters are the future of our city. So in order to generate employment in the city, we have planned to hold a day’s seminar in Bengaluru so that more investors may invest in this region.”

Commenting on the job opportunities here he said, “We had previously conducted an investors’ meet in the city, but did not get a good response due to a variety of reasons. Mangaluru is diverse and is a unique city in the entire country with high potential and basic infrastructure. The city has best connectivity with airport, railway station and port. Despite all the basic infrastructure and facilities in the region, job opportunities are less.”

“I have already held government level talks. The government has agreed to hold this seminar. The reason for this seminar being organized at Bengaluru is for more number of investors to participate as it is convenient to attend. Once the investors attend, we will explain to them the potential of Mangaluru which will create curiosity to invest in this region. We will also give a brief summary about the region and why they should invest. We will provide all the support from our side,” Lobo explained.

“The investors meet will require a lot of preparation. The seminar will be organized within the next six months. My objective is to bring more and more investors to Mangaluru and the district so that youngsters of this region can get good job opportunities and so need not find the need to migrate to other cities,” he disclosed.
