IT IS NOT OUR KARMA TO BE THE MARKETPLACE OF THE WORLD: DR. S. JAISHANKAR
The External Affairs Minister interacts with IIMB students and faculty on Atmanirbhar Bharat
The External Affairs Minister interacted with IIMB students and faculty on Atmanirbhar Bharat, on June 10th. “There is, today, a very different India in the making. The scale of beneficiaries of schemes taken up in the last eight years to connect people to the banking system, electricity, housing, potable water, replacing firewood in kitchen with LPG, public health, etc., will make you understand that India is in the middle of a revolution with lives changing dramatically, and this ‘revolution’ is happening democratically. So, the India you step into as you start off with your careers will be fundamentally different form the country how it was when you started your studies,” said External Affairs Minister Dr. S Jaishankar. He highlighted that the country was going through a socio-economic change in its bid to create a social security net, which will raise the bottom line of India. “So, India will be different in terms of its skills, demand, entrepreneurial and business acumen, and this change is linked to the implementation of Atmanirbhar Bharat.”
