With the objective of building greater awareness and consensus on various issues critical for the country’s growth, CII has launched a new monthly publication called Policy Watch. It is widely circulated to all stakeholders, particularly to membership and government to communicate Industry’s views and recommendations across different sectors.
The March 2014 issue of Policy Watch focuses on the suggested Election Manifesto for Political Parties.
With the General Elections coming up in April-May, political parties are drafting their manifestos taking into account the perspectives of all stakeholders, including industry. As Indian industry plays a vital role in nation-building, CII undertook a wide-ranging consultative process to prepare a suggested Election Manifesto for consideration of political parties, in the context of subdued GDP growth outlook.
The mission statement of CII’s Suggested Election Manifesto is to ‘Empower All Indians to Build an Inclusive, Developed and Secure Nation’.
Subsequently CII had detailed interactions with several Political parties with suggestions for their consideration.
