On Monday, his first day in the US, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami visited a dairy farm at Buffalo.

The Chief Minister reached New York on Monday morning and was received by a group of state ministers and members from the Tamil diaspora.

According to reports, the aim of the CM’s visit to the dairy farm was to know more about the improved breeds of cows and new technologies in processing dairy products, a precursor to the state government’s efforts to set up a livestock park in Thalaivasal, Salem.

During his visit, the Chief Minister also enquired about the cross-breeding of cows, maintenance of good health of livestock and genetic preservation methods for native breeds of cattle. Tamil Nadu Minister for Industries MC Sampath, Minister for Dairy Development KT Rajenthra Bhalaji, Minister for Information Technology RB Udhayakumar and other senior bureaucrats from the state government were also a part of the delegation that visited the dairy farm.

The Chief Minister was in Buffalo as part of his 10-day visit to the United Kingdom, USA and Dubai. His first stop after flying out from India on August 28 was the United Kingdom. He visited London and signed agreements with healthcare service providers in the city. He also visited the Emergency Operations Centre of the London Ambulance Service and its call centres to study the model of response to emergency calls, which is expected to be implemented in Tamil Nadu. Chief Minister Palaniswami also visited Suffolk to know more about the renewable energy industry and the pricing strategy that could be adopted for the sector.

After a short stay in the US, he will stop at Dubai for a business investors’ meet, which is being jointly organised by the Indian Embassy, the Business Leaders Forum and the United Arab Emirates. He is scheduled to return to India on September 10.
