Telangana and New Jersey signed a ‘Sister State Partnership Agreement’ on Wednesday to strengthen the partnership and relationship between the people of the two States.

The agreement was signed by Chief Secretary SK Joshi and New Jersey State Governor Phil Murphy in the presence of IT and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao.

The agreement facilitates cooperation in areas of economic development such as IT, pharma and life sciences, biotech, fintech, media, data centres, clean energy, higher education, tourism, culture, and healthcare sectors.

The agreement will encourage continued discussions, development programmes and activities of mutual interest among the people of the two States. The Minister said Telangana would benefit in several sectors with this sister-State agreement. “A lot of Telugu people reside in New Jersey,” he said, adding that he too was a resident of the US State for a brief period.

Appreciating the investor-friendly policies of Telangana, Murphy said the State was suitable for global businesses. Principal Secretary Jayesh Ranjan was present.
