Mr. Amitabh Kant at CII Young Indian’s Annual Event.
It was an excellent speech from Mr. Amitabh Kant who is an IAS officer. As of 2015 he is the CEO, NITI Aayog (National Institution for Transforming India). NITI is a Government institution for catalysing economic development.
The speech was more on his concept of Startup India and Make in India. He sounds to be very knowledgeable and was proactive in answering the questions raised by Young Leaders. There was a delegation from Germany also in this event which comprised of 50 exceptional young talents from the Indo German Young Leaders Forum (IGYLF) – an entity supported by the embassies of both countries and is a platform for strengthening and nurturing Indo-German ties. The theme of the event was “Emerging India: Powering through Uncertainty”. His focus on skill development was also to be praised as it can change the scenario of employability in India. Urbanization was another factor which he told will take place in next few years.
He also stressed that there would be a lot of disruption by young generation by giving 3 to 4 examples of young entrepreneurs who have changed the traditional method of teaching and doing business. He also asked young generation and SME’s to focus on Import and Export business as its very important for any country to do that by sharing examples of Suzuki and Renault.
After that there was a session by Bidisha Ganguly, Chief Economist at Confederation of Indian Industry which was done with a presentation which has provided deep insights on GDP’s and ho it will do in next five years. She stressed on:
- Private Sector Promotion
