The Odisha government has signed an MoU with the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change (TBI) to get its support in implementing various strategies and policies to bring a change in the state’s ongoing transformation process in various sectors.

It will also seek help from the TBI on the issue of governance and unlocking the power of technology.


“It helps leaders by advising on strategy, policy, and delivery, and by unlocking the power of technology across all three. Its domains of specialisation include governance, foreign policy, investments, infrastructure and cities, climate and energy, and human capital,” said a press release, issued by the state government.

Founded by former Prime Minister of the UK, Tony Blair, TBI works in more than 50 countries to help governments turn ideas into reality.

The state government said the organization will help in building more open, inclusive, and prosperous societies for people everywhere. The collaboration, a non-commercial project, involves strategy development support, delivery and implementation support, and strategic communications support.

“Under these support initiatives, TBI will undertake a range of activities such as current-state analysis, external benchmarking, roadmap design, capacity development, effective communication of core reforms to enhance adoption, and many others. These initiatives, coupled with TBI’s expertise in leveraging insights from various public and private stakeholders, are expected to further catalyse Odisha’s ongoing transformation,” the release said
