The potential revival of the economy to over 7 per cent growth rates in 2018-19 sets a new pace for Industry even as global and domestic economic challenges remain. Against this backdrop, CII has charted its Theme for the year as ‘India RISE: Responsible. Inclusive. Sustainable. Entrepreneurial.’
As we head towards 75 years of Independence in 2022, the CII call to action for India@75 has gained momentum, and has been largely internalized by the Government.
CII will focus on these areas and under Responsible India, activities around governance, transparency and corporate social responsibility will be increased. Under Inclusive India, the focus will be on agriculture, education and skill development, healthcare and employment. For Sustainable India, green business and green buildings, energy efficiency, water management and climate change will be in focus. Entrepreneurial India aims to improve the ecosystem for Industry as also to build competitiveness for enterprises.
This edition of Policy Watch touches upon these important aspects.
