Incredible India is no longer a figment of philosophical ventures and imagination. Over the years it has emerged as the fastest growing major economy in the world with over 7% annual growth in GDP. In terms of PPP it has become the third largest economy . India’s industrial prowess and intellectual enterprise have made the Indian work force a global good and a comparative advantage for the country. Moreover, India has always been a trading nation even if during the course of history due to foreign invasions and colonial rule its trading quest was contained . The spirit of Indian adventure continues apace.
While India has surely emerged as a leader in the Information Technology and Communications we can forget the contribution of the Small and medium sector industries to the Indian growth story. It was estimated that over 45 million units employing over 100 million people and huge capital from the MSME Sector provide the requisite fuel and impetus to industrial and economic growth of the country. This sector continues to be nurtured and guided especially as they look for new opportunities abroad and chartering green field territories in trade and investment across the whole spectrum of manufacturing, services and agriculture sectors.
Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched several salutary initiatives to make India a manufacturing hub through his “Make in India’ , “Start up India “ and “ Stand up India” . Similarly, the “Digital India” aims to bridge the digital divide in the country and to really the reap the benefits of a democratic and demographic dividend so that India stands tall as an economic and democratic giant in the comity of nations.
We are striving to assist the Indian government and industry in their economic enterprise through the Millennial India International Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (MIICCIA) by identifying suitable opportunities in India and abroad and creating reliable networks so that a win-win relationship between the Indian and foreign businesses could prosper. Our motto is to Access, Adapt and Achieve. Let us join hands in this effort of nation building.

Indian and African and the industry

It was a great pleasure to Chair this session on cooperation with Africa especially on Education and Health care at the conference organised yesterday by #VIF and CII . In fact all sessions were amazing and provided a great insight by diplomats both Indian and African and the industry and experts on key areas of cooperation. Africa remains the key foreign policy priority for India. Having spent over 10 years in as many countries my affection for Afritude and people there is ingrained .
