Piyush Goyal: Need to develop skills of tomorrow for the industry

04 March 2022, Mumbai:

The Minister of Commerce and Industry, Consumer Affairs, Food, and Public Distribution and Textiles, Piyush Goyal has called for increasing India's share in global trade to 10% and taking our share of exports in GDP to about 25%.

“These are ambitious targets, but I think doable,” said Goyal, addressing the Closing session of the Post-Budget Webinar on ‘Make in India for the World’.

Goyal said the Prime Minister, in his Inaugural Address to the webinar, renewed emphasis to promote Manufacturing and make India self-sufficient. “Today other countries are also talking of programmes very similar to AatmaNirbhar Bharat.

And I think there can be no better endorsement of the importance and the success of this vision than the fact that the world today wants to emulate the India story,” he said. Shri Goyal called for taking India among the top 3 nations in Global Services Trade.
