New Delhi : Commerce & Industry Minister Piyush Goyal on December 15, 2020, addressed Indian Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Plenary Session via video conferencing.

In his address, Goyal acknowledged the very important role played by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) to tide over the COVID- pandemic related hardships, to ensure orderly handling of the pandemic, and get back to country’s original agenda of achieving $5 trillion economy by 2025.

Goyal said that COVID should be seen as an opportunity for all of us to relook at our businesses, processes, our way of working, and relook at our quality & productivity standards. “This nation is proud of each & every one of you. This nation will always remember the way Indian industry rose to the occasion, the way it expanded capacities to start manufacturing PPEs, masks, ventilators in India,”, he added, according to a PIB release.

” Today, the world is looking upon India as a trusted partner. The world is wanting a resilient global supply chain and it is our duty to take this opportunity, make ‘Aatmarnirbhar Bharat’ our mantra, inspiration, and goal,” said   Goyal.

“We must leverage our millions of skilled young boys and girls to become the factory of the world, just like we are today recognised as the pharmacy of the world. Industry & Government have to partner to ensure that we reach our $5 trillion target by 2025,” Goyal added.

Goyal asked industry leaders that when we celebrate the 100 years of independence in 2047, can we all not resolve to be the No.1 economy of the world. People-centric policies, positive outlook & pro-active action that PM Narendra Modi has demonstrated, both, for a better life for the poor and to encourage honest business practices, can ensure sustainable development and lead us to transformation, Goyal said.
