Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India is performing, reforming, transforming and offering new economic opportunities.
He said, this is an India which is adopting a human centric and inclusive approach for the development.
In his inaugural address today at the India Global Week 2020, Mr. Modi said, India is playing a leading role in the global revival and the country is ready to do whatever it can to further global good and prosperity.
He said, it is natural to link global revival and India and two factors are contributing immensely in this revival; one is Indian talent and the other is India’s ability to reform and rejuvenate.
He said, India is a power-house of talent that is eager to contribute and Indians are natural reformers who have overcome social or economic challenges.
He said, revival with care, revival with compassion and revival which is sustainable both for the environment and the economy is the objective of India.
On the Covid-19 pandemic, Mr. Modi said, India is fighting a strong battle against the global pandemic with an increased focus on people’s health and the country is equally focused on the health of the economy.
Listing out the major milestones of the present government, the Prime Minister said, during the last six years, India has made great gains in the areas of financial inclusion, housing and infrastructure construction, ease of doing business and bold tax reforms including the GST.
He said, due to the technology, every penny has reached the beneficiaries directly.
The Prime Minister invited global companies to invest in India.
He said, India is one of the most open economies in the world and invite global companies to come and establish their presence in India.
He assured that very few countries will offer the kind of opportunities India provides today.
He said, there are many possibilities and opportunities in India like agriculture, MSME, Defence, Space and Pharma sectors.
He said, Atma Nirbhar Bharat is not about being self-contained or being closed to the world, but it is about being self-sustaining and self-generating.
In his conclusive remark, Mr. Modi said, this forum is also marking the 100th birth anniversary of Pandit Ravi Shankar who took the beauty of Indian classical music to the world.
