Panaji: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today chaired the meeting of State run Investment Promotion Board which cleared seven investment proposals in the State.

The IPB Spokesman said that during the meeting total of 13 projects were placed before the Board for decision which included eleven new investment proposals and review of two previously approved by the Board.
