Apex industry body FICCI has praised the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, for his visionary speech on the eve of Independence Day and congratulate Modi and his government for their sincere efforts in taking economy to higher levels of growth.
Various mega plans announced by Prime Minister at the Red Fort last year have been implemented with much rigour, passion and commitment. In-fact, FICCI has been actively supporting the Government in various socio-economic development initiatives including the Make in India, Digital India, Skill India as well as Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan," said Jyotsna Suri, President, FICCI.
Suri said that Prime Minister's announcements on Start-up India Stand up India and for providing employment linked incentives to industry are welcome steps as these will boost entrepreneurship and create the much needed employment opportunities for our nation's youth.
"Creating a few million entrepreneurs across the country will not only create many more million jobs but also provide livelihood opportunities for the poor in remote corners of the country. Strengthening merit based employment eco-system by doing away of interviews for low-end jobs is a step in the right direction, inculcating a sense of confidence and empowerment for all citizens", said Suri.
"The national targets laid out for India for achievement by 2022 are visionary and are directed to create an inclusive, progressive and developed India. FICCI stands committed to support the government in all the developmental initiatives and will continue to work with the government in achieving the national growth agenda", added Suri.
