Raipur, Sep 8 (UNI) Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa today said his state was keen in cooperation with Chhattisgarh in information and bio-technology besides other sectors.
Mr Yediyurappa made the statement here while inking a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for setting up 1,200 MW power plant.
''This is merely a beginning. Chhattisgarh is rich in mineral resources, while Karnataka leads the world in IT and bio-technology sectors apart from medical and engineering fields,'' he said, adding that both states were interested in cooperation in these areas.
He said Karnataka was ahead in silk production with its world-class technology.
Expressed gratitude to Mr Yediyurappa, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh said Chhattisgarh was a new state and was behind in these areas comparatively. The state would reap benefits from experience and cooperation of Karnataka in this regard.
