India’s entrepreneurial generation to drive economic growth: Dhankhar

Vice President Jagdish Dhankar

Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar urged business and industry leaders to be more proactive to boost India’s Aatmanirbhar Bharat scheme. “India is counting on its entrepreneurial generation to drive economic growth by creating new enterprises, new jobs, new exports and new solutions to the developmental problems,” Dhankhar said.

He also said that the industry has a “crucial responsibility of catalysing qualitative upliftment of the farm sector”.

“If the Indian farmer progresses, India progresses,” he said, while inaugurating the 49th National Management Convention of the All India Management Association (AIMA) in the capital today.

Underlining the various initiatives by the government to upskill and “making India’s enterprises and workforce world class”, Dhankhar called upon the industry to take responsibility in promoting and upgrading the workforce with the latest skill sets.

Lauding India’s start-up sector and calling it one of the best in the world, Dhankhar said that “digital entrepreneurs are beginning to appear even in small towns and rural areas”. He added that India’s rich human resources are recognised globally, and that they need to be further harnessed to maximise India’s advantage on the world stage.

The slew of reform measures which have been put in place has also helped in improving the ease of doing business in the country, he noted.

“Both democracy and economy flourish when transparency and accountability are reflected at each stage in a governance system. The leaders of the industry play a critical role in improving efficiency in the economy,” he said.
