Prime Minister Nerandra Modi is likely to inaugurate JITO Connect, a three-day mega event hosted by the Jain community, to be held in Chennai during February 23-25.

The eighth edition of the Jain International Trade Organisation (JITO) Connect, an event which sees the convergence of entrepreneurs from the Jain community, is expected to have more than 3,500 delegates from more than 25 countries and from within India and about 1,50,000 participants, according to organisers of the event.

JITO also inducted new members for the Hyderabad Chapter to be headed by industrialist Narendra Surana.
