"Over 600 investors from India and 15 other countries are expected to participate in the two-day summit. The summit, which is being organised by the state's Industries Department, will feature discussions on priority sectors, field visits to industrial areas and high-level meetings with state leadership, setting a new benchmark for industrial growth and investment in Bihar," he said.
