Even recently Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan also discussed several issues with Arcelor Mittal executive chairman LN Mittal and CEO Aditya Mittal. They discussed driving domestic steel demand and making the Indian industry more vibrant among other issues.
Pradhan also tweeted- “Had a fruitful meeting with Mr. Lakshmi Niwas Mittal, Chairman & CEO of ArcelorMittal @ArcelorMittal. We had good discussions on sustainable energy, driving domestic steel demand, boosting steel consumption, and making our steel and oil & gas industry more vibrant and competitive.”
India has other investments in Odisha, which includes the 6 MTPA pelletization plant in Paradip and later will be expanded to 12 MTPA and the benefaction complex and slurry pipeline projects already operational in Keonjhar.
