Ambani said that Tamil Nadu has become one of the most business-friendly states in the country and that he believes that the state would soon become a trillion-dollar economy. “Reliance has proudly partnered in Tamil Nadu’s growth over the years. We have opened nearly 1,300 retail stores across the state, investing over Rs 25,000 crores. Jio has invested over Rs 35,000 crores in Tamil Nadu, bringing the fruits of the digital revolution to 35 million subscribers in every town and village in the state,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu government announced that it has signed investment pacts worth over $4.39 billion with firms such as Tata Electronics and Pegatron, both of which are suppliers for Apple, as well as auto major Hyundai Motors.
