NEW DELHI, 12 December 2020: Mr Piyush Goyal, Minister for Commerce & Industry & Railways today said that the government is working on the 3-I principles for nation-building; Inspire, Initiate and Innovate.
Addressing the session, The Building Blocks of the New India, during FICCI’s 93rd Annual General Meeting, Mr Goyal said, “We are trying to create the first genuine single window in terms of compliances and ease of approval process. We are making every effort towards this effect.”
On manufacturing, Mr Goyal said that the government has identified 24 champion sectors that will add INR 200 lac crore in the next 10 years to the nation's manufacturing GDP and provide millions of jobs, besides creating the size and scale of manufacturing. Initiatives are being led by industry and sectoral leaders are leading the initiatives and are being encouraged to come up with actionable agenda.
