Chennai, June 9 (UNI) The Tamil Nadu Government today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Moser Baer, manufacturer of optical storage devices, for setting up a greenfield facility at Oragadam in SIPCOT SEZ with an investment of Rs 2,000 crore.
The MoU was signed by Industries Secretary M F Farooqui and Moser Baer India Managing Director Deepak Puri in the presence of Chief Minister M Karunanidhi and Union Communications Minister A Raja at the state Secretariat here.
