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 will be widely circulated to all stakeholders, particularly to membership and government to communicate Industry’s views and recommendations across different sectors.
Allowing FDI in multi-brand Retail would significantly benefit all stakeholders – consumers, producers (farmers) & SMEs and generate significant employment. This would also lead to substantial investment in back-end infrastructure like cold chains, warehousing, logistics and expansion of contract farming.
This edition of the CII Policy Watch takes an in-depth look at the Retail sector and issues related to both regulatory environment and investments required.
