â€śWe are delighted to see the extraordinary efforts of the Central government, as well as the Maharashtra government, during the world-class Make In India week in attracting CEOs of global firms across different sectors,â€ť said Rajesh Jaggi, Co-CEO of IndoSpace, and Managing Partner of Everstone Real Estate.
IndoSpace is a joint venture between the Everstone Group and US-based Realterm.
The MOUs were signed at the Maharashtra Investment Summit during this weekâ€™s Make In India drive in Mumbai. They will facilitate IndoSpaceâ€™s proposed investment at MIDCâ€™s Chakan and Ranjangaon parks by enabling necessary registrations, approvals, and clearances required from the concerned departments as per existing policies, rules and regulations of the Government of Maharashtra.
Â â€śThe Government of Maharashtra has been very supportive in our efforts to develop world-class industrial and logistics infrastructure in the state, and these MoUs will fast-track investment into these projects, accelerate their development, and help attract more multinational manufacturing companies to Maharashtra,â€ť Â said Brian Oravec, CEO of IndoSpace.
The MoUs were signed by Oravec for IndoSpace and by Bhushan Gagrani, CEO, MIDC, for the state in the presence of Subhash Desai, Minister of Industries, Government of Maharashtra.
Earlier this week, IndoSpace announced a proposed investment of $ 1 billion in India over the next five years, which will fund the development and expansion of its own 17 industrial real estate projects across the country to support manufacturing, consumer and 3PL (third-party logistics) companies operating in the nationâ€™s rapidly growing economy.
