U.P. must get that much needed push in the post pandemic world believes Arthur D little which aims at bringing forth a sweeping transformation in Uttar Pradesh that has a lot to do with the national growth story.
In order to make PM Modi’s dream of turning India into a 5 trillion dollar economy, 5 to 10 years of solid work is what Arthur D little envisages. With global investors coming, aspirations are high. ADL is the oldest Management Consultancy and it is now expanding its network to Uttar Pradesh. After Mumbai and Delhi, now Lucknow will have an office from where U.P. overall operations will be carried out. ADL will work with Former Chief Secretary U.P. government, Alok Ranjan and Executive Council Member & Board of Director of Indo American Chamber of Commerce , Advisor to Arthur D Little, Mukesh Bahadur Singh.

Yogi Adityanath led government is an honest government where investment is safe, added Maitra. Mukesh Bahadur Singh, another Senior Board Advisor said he will discharge his duties with utmost responsibility.
The organization looks at a quantum leap for Uttar Pradesh given the fact that it is the second lowest in per capita income. Why can’t we be among the top 3 says Senior Board Advisor, Alok Ranjan. He says with a collective work experience of 38 years the commitment is to work to give back to UP. Uttar Pradesh is perhaps the fifth largest nation in the world with multiple states within.
He said, “ The idea will be to work as per the needs of the state. With new market reforms and an evolving population, focus will be on how best to better prospects. Eastern, Western UP and rural areas will be focus which has immense potential. Rural industrialization with 3rd largest food processing capabilities are a goldmine they feel.
Senior Board Advisor, Brajesh Singh said, “It is like home. Have had a strong connect with Lucknow and have lead several successful projects of which U.P. was an inextricable part. There is much need of a direction. Investors see social safety and security. We often tend to forget our resources which should not happen.”

As work on employment generation is strongly being worked out upping GDP will be the core behind ADL’s operations in the state.
