Besides, various investors have submitted letters of intent (LoIs) for investments totaling worth Rs 10,099 crore, she said speaking at the Invest Rajasthan Roadshow-Exploring Investment Opportunities in Rajasthan here.
A total of 145 MoUs and LoIs worth over Rs 79,000 crore have been signed, the minister said at the event organised by the Rajasthan government in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) to showcase the business and growth opportunities present in the state.
Many big companies are already present in the state and running their businesses in various sectors, Rawat said and urged the investors to invest in Rajasthan where the government is giving subsidies on setting up new businesses.
Rajasthan Additional Chief Secretary Shubhra Singh said the investors can explore the potential in sectors like renewable energy, textile, cement, ceramic, paints, auto, electrical equipment, medical equipment, consumer goods, refinery and mining.

About 125 companies have signed MoUs on Wednesday, and already own land for their proposed projects, while 20 have submitted LoIs for their projects and are looking for land options, the official told PTI while replying to a question as to by when the agreements signed are expected to translate into actual investments.
