"Atmanirbhar Bharat :Accelerating growth through Innovation, Integrity and inclusion"
About The Conference
On May 12, the Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, announced a special economic package of Rs 20 lakh crore (equivalent to 10% of India’s GDP) with the aim of making the country independent against the tough competition in the global supply chain and to help in empowering the poor, labourers, migrants who have been adversely affected by COVID. Following this announcement, the Finance Minister, Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman announced the detailed measures under the economic package. “Atmanirbhar Bharat" campaign is aimed at giving a new boost to the economic potential of the country by strengthening infrastructure, using modern technologies, enriching human resource, and creating robust supply chains.
“The call for a self-reliant India is not aimed at encouraging ‘’protectionism or isolationism", but for adopting a pragmatic development strategy to enable the country recognise and capitalise on its inherent strengths”.
- M Venkaiah Naidu, Vice President
“AtmaNirbhar Bharat merges domestic production and consumption with global supply chains. It's not about being self-contained or being closed to the world rather being self-sustaining and self-generating.”
- S Jaishankar, External Affairs Minister
Though the package of Rs. 20 lakh crore seems promising for the country to become self-reliant but along with it other structural reforms are pertinent for the economic sustainability. In this scenario, the entrepreneurs can play an important role by establishing new business ventures to strengthen the Indian economy. However, other structural changes required in the current environment include the overhauling of current education system and prioritizing public-health, emphasis on local manufacturing and strengthening the supply chains.
