Top Mercedes Benz executives met with the Maharashtra state minister yesterday to invest Rs 3,000 crore in the state.  

Industries Minister Uday Samant confirmed the development on social media yesterday and said that this investment will increase the number of jobs. 

“Had a meeting with the representative of the Mercedes-Benz company while on tour to Germany today. Mercedes Benz is going to invest Rs 3,000 crore in Maharashtra this year. This will increase the number of jobs in Maharashtra along with industries. There was a discussion regarding this today,” said Samant in a post in Marathi. 

Maharashtra-Germany Partnership:

Samant also mentioned that the delegation from Maharashtra met with their counterparts from Germany to discuss bridging the gap in skilled labour. 

He stated that Maharashtra would offer support to the German state of Baden-Württemberg in addressing its workforce needs. 

The minister also mentioned that they would ensure a smooth transition for workers in Maharashtra, providing them with technical skills and basic proficiency in the German language to enhance their employment opportunities with German companies. 

Also, Samant and his team met with Winfried Kretschmann, the Minister-President of Baden-Württemberg, along with other ministers.

The recent developments are expected to benefit the Shiv Sena-BJP-NCP government before the state assembly elections, amidst claims that Maharashtra is losing major projects to other states.

Samant met with Mercedes-Benz management board members including Dr Jörg Berger, Marina Krets, Martin Schulz, and Venkatesh Kulkarni from Mercedes-Benz India.
