When it comes to maintaining a favorable business climate in the state, Odisha has been a constant. The Odisha government recently approved 19 investment projects worth Rs 3,663 crore. According to the official statements, these projects, approved during a meeting of the State Level Single Window Clearance Authority (SLSWCA), are expected to generate employment for over 13,500 people. However, the state has no plan to take the foot off the accelerator. Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, a few days ago, inaugurated the Ernst & Young new technology hub in Bhubaneswar.
This is the 15th city of presence for Ernst & Young, the global leader in assurance, tax, strategy, transaction, and consulting services. Inaugurating the facility, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said, “Odisha is embracing the digital era and fostering an environment ripe for ground-breaking advancements. Odisha’s growth trajectory is fuelled by a robust ecosystem that encourages entrepreneurship, technological innovation, and new-age businesses. EY’s expertise in these areas will undoubtedly add immense value to our endeavors. Opening of the EY Technology Centre marks yet another watershed moment, signifying the fast changing IT, strategy, and consulting ecosystem in the State.”

The new Technology Hub will leverage EY’s purpose of Building a Better Working World. With 15,000 sq ft of state-of the-art infrastructure at O-Hub, the expanded presence of EY in Bhubaneswar will create opportunities for existing employees and enable the company to harness potential talent from the technical educational ecosystem in Odisha. As the technology ecosystem in Odisha is thriving, the timing couldn’t be any better to publish our yearly special issue based on the state’s corporate ecosystem.
